In my own style

I wish I had the poets gifts
 Of wisdom, soul, and passion
Oh how I wish I had the power
To write in such a fashion
I’ve never learned to touch my soul
{I can barely touch my heart]
But I know rhythm, I know rhyme
For this it be my art

So me, I’ll come from where I am
Until the time is rife
To let the beauty pour on out
From the deeper spheres of life
I’ll give you me, I’ll make up stories
I’ll speak of love, I’ll speak of glory 
  My feelings all, I’ll put them down
So in emotions you might drown.

I’ll make comments on your art
But I won’t criticise 
Cause me I do not know that much
On this, I’m not too wise
And when you write about my songs
Let comments come, both loud, and long
And on this site it will be told
That all of me I did unfold

Now me, I really love to write
I love to make things rhyme
I’ve done it since my days were young
And now with passing time
I guess I’m more the Guthrie type
And it is now my fashion
To give the world my home spun truths
As I write them down with Passion.
