A Short Thought on Writing


How I write says who I am
or maybe who I want to be
from feelings said intentionally
to the ones deep inside of me

If you look beyond the laughter
or words said without much thought
you may see what I am after
or lessons that have been taught

How I write is with much conviction
and believing that it can come true
I say it without any restriction
for it is my true point of view.

    This is so very true. Write how you feel and not be like
    any other. Each of us are unique and that makes for a
    beautiful world. Very inspiring with good rhyme and rhythm (Report) Reply

    When words come from the heart, our writings reflect our true self! Just as a tree is known by its fruits, we are judged by our writings! Great thought! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
