Writing words

Writing words

I could sit here writing songs
From now until forever
I could let the words flow out
And me thinks I would never
Run out of words, it can’t be done
Cause me I am the word man
But if these words did fade away
I’ll just write while I can.

I love to make these word patterns
And try to give them meaning
Then they might act just like a light
With all its rays a beaming
So as you read them you’ll light up
Just like a Christmas tree
Then your minds might gain new depth
All through these words from me.

This it be my one ambition
To get through to everyone
With words of sweetness, words of truth
And when my work be done
They’ll say that I did leave my mark
And caused some inspiration
At least from one or two or three
With the depth of my creations.

    Thank you Sara, I don't really have much to say as to what comes out of my pen. The words just seem to come to me, and I write them down. Thank you so much for all your kind comments...peter

    Cherri, We must be of the kindred breed, for I was writing stories twenty or thirty pages long when I was nine or ten years old. Boys were'nt encouraged to write in those days, we were supposed to kick balls around lol. I am so glad that you liked my words, my friend...Peter

    this is very clever, Peter. I think many of us wordsmiths feel like this and we love knowing that we can at least inspire those who know us! (wouldn't it be cool though, to go down in history for one's poetry?)

    I should think that we will not know much about it. But yes I would love to be like Woody Guthrie and have my simple folk songs sung all over the world. I don't know much about poetry, but I do know about folk singers. That is my kind of poetry. All the best Andrea....peter

    You will never run out of words my dear friend Peter, for you are a volcano of feelings in constant eruption! Remember: NO volcano could ever remain unnoticed as it attracts the attention of many from afar!
