In and Out of Tune

I sing my song slightly off key.
That's why no one, stands beside me

You may wonder why I'm upset.
I had hoped to sing a duet.

Maybe singing is not for me.
I will stick with my poetry.

The words I write can harmonize.
If they are sung by other guys.

Vocal talent I don't possess.
But with my words I can caress.

So I will let you sing my tune.
Better voices are made to croon.

    I have an absolutely horrible singing voice. I know it, and people all around me know it... but I still sing at very random moments. It just makes you feel good, and more lighthearted. As long as you're doing what you love, then all should be well. Good poem.

    The Bible does say to make a joyful noise to the Lord! ;) The deeper meaning of your poem is amazing. I must admit, I do love singing. I often sing in church...solos, duets, quartets...choral singing. I lead out in worship, and I tell you...singing is one of the biggest joys of my life. My daughter has posted a couple of songs on YouTube. She is awesome. Richard...your poetry is your song! You sing beautifully too! :)

    Aww thanks, that is so sweet. In reality I just let it fly when I sing in church, I also enjoy kareokee from time to time. For me dancing bring me a lot of enjoyment.
