What keeps me writing

What makes me keep writing
That’s a question I might ask
I don’t think it’s because I’m vain
In glory I don’t bask
Far too many others out there
Could well pass me on this
And so on being asked this question
I’ll tell you how it is.

Firstly cause I can
That’s why I write like this
One has to have ability
That’s just the way it is
Secondly I love it
It gives me such delight
It keeps me always pondering
And hones my mind up bright.

But most of all I love to write
Cause me, I am a star
Just like you are, just the same
We are, we really are
And each of us has just one story
And I’m in love with mine
I love the storms, the gales, the snow
And I really love the sunshine

And so I write the whole lot down
All my thoughts, wishes and dreams
I’ll Make my patterns out of words
And hope from them truth beams
And If you’re going to read my stuff
Then I hope you’ll love my story
I want to give the whole world me
Though me, I seek no glory,

    Thank you for commenting on my poem Debbie; I think your Irony was very well written and very affective. I find it hard to make my point in three or four stanzas, you do it in a couple of lines. Every time I look at a poem I find me re wording it, but this is always part of the creativity Lol Peter
