Joining the soupers

Joining the souper’s

Three years ago I wrote my songs
But just for me alone
They stayed with me and my family
My words they were not known
By anyone, I did not dare
To send these songs around
I thought I wrote a heap of crap
But then one day I found…

By sending them to face book
I got some nice comments
And so I joined the souper folk
So off to them I sent
Some of my poems most every day
And they did treat them well
And most of them were real sincere
They liked them, I could tell.

They never said when I got it wrong
When commenting on their stuff
Cause I’m not good at reading poems
I’ve never read enough
And some stuff I don’t understand
Though I do my very best
And I’ve mucked up a good few times
When entering their contests.

So now I’d like to thank these folk
For putting up with me
I’ll be on this site for a long, long time
Cause it really makes me happy
To write my songs and send them off
To such a lovely site
It’s such a gorgeous place to be
And me, I love to write.

    I can relate to every line of this poem, Peter. I had been writing poems for about 10 years before I shared them with anyone. Now, I am so glad that I did! I enjoyed reading this poem! Nicely done!...Thank you very much for the great comments!

Being on the soup has. made me realize that my words are worth something, and keeps me wanting to write my simple verse. I do appreciate your comments lucy. I too find your poems to be excellent....
