Want the real truth?
It was written in bed!!
Sometimes I stop and think
Where will I find the next link?
That will lead me from line to line
Four lines so far, guess I’m doing fine
Trying hard to be poetic
Is as difficult as being phonetic –
It will make perfect sense given time
You see I had to find a word to rhyme
Never feel it will defeat you
Don’t discard it, file it away and start anew
Words of wisdom if I may say so
Extolled by one while we dined out one evening alfresco
Writing is all about concentration
Of course there has to be inspiration
You won’t get far without expectation
Which in turn brings out perspiration?
If you don’t write something it will be an abomination
You can always return make an alteration
Me – I’m just making an observation
If you have come this far on the journey with me
I thank you for your patience and generosity
The encouragement I feel from each comment made
Pushes me on, makes me feel unafraid –
Of writing something such as this
Which long before I would have given a miss?
So this monster you have helped create
In no way thinks he is great
It might just happen these will be the last words penned
If they are someone else my mistakes may amend.
