Why does one join a poetry site

Why does one join a poetry site?

Why does one join a poetry site?
I’ll tell you why I did
I’ve been writing songs for forty years
But always kept them hid
But then one day a thought occurred
Why not be proud of me?
These words that come, they’re mine alone
They’re my totality.

They be the sum of all my life
Oh what a lovely story!
I write of all my troubled times
I write of all my glory
I send all my emotions out
All my feelings on my life
I’ll speak of life and family
And all our worldly strife

Then I look at all the views that come
And I know I’m doing well
That folk they show an interest
And some are in the spell
Of all those whims that come to me
And fill this clear white sheet
Knowing I’ve reached out to folk
Makes my life more complete.

    Peter, your philosphy is right on target. I feel exactly the same way. It's so nice tho think that our poetry and comments could help us. It's a pleasant thought.

    Yessir, I couldn't agree more...It's wonderful to put it all down on paper and have others who do the same show their appreciation and approval...A fine piece of work Peter - Tim
