Just for the sake of writing

Just for the sake of writing

Sometimes I sit here writing
Just for the sake of it
I feel the magic of these keys
And it stirs me up a bit
To write just anything at all
Anything that comes along
It could be just some little ditty
Or it might become a song.

I guess a writer’s never made
She is born, it be her gift
I have been caught in untold terror
Yet I have felt it lift
With just a word or two or more
Wrote on a clear white sheet
So often I’ve been on the edge
Then writing made things sweet.

To me, it’s not a competition
It’s saying what you feel
Letting it come flowing out
From a mind that has the will
To see the patterns on the paper
It gives me such delight
I let these words come flowing out
Each morning, noon and night.

    Peter, You sit at one end of the writing spectrum on this one... I sit at the other end and write, "The Poets' Wine." Reach across the table and have a glass.... It was one of my first few posts on this site.... I hope you like it...... Regards.... Jake

    Hi peter ; I like the way you wrote this poem. i have been told that not anyone can be a writer, even though the words are there - not everyone can put them together to form a poem. Thanks for sharing and for reading my poem..... Lucilla
