Let it come naturally

Let it come naturally

I read a note the other day
That told me what to do
She said that If I write for her
But write it somehow brand new
Change the way you write it
Bring arrangement to the fore
She rattled out a million rules
That me, did really bore

And then she said ‘come through the soul
That’s how it’s supposed to be’
But then rereading what was wrote
It kind of puzzled me
My stuff it always comes through soul
That’s the only way I write
But when I try to change my style
The poems don’t shine so bright.

For patterns they come from the mind
They don’t come through the soul
So when I write my good words down
I find it all so dull
Cause words ain’t words until they flow
And how can that be done
When mind is busy trying to wreck
A song once it’s begun.

    Peter, it is hard to find that piece of me... maybe we should not change who or what we feel. Every time I change form, I take from myself.... enjoyed...Linda

    i like this one...I think many of us can relate...when I try and force my muse to write of something or a certain way it seems so much more difficult, it flows better if the muse does its own thing, for me anyway...nice poem :)
