I give you me

I give you me

I’ll write, write, write forever
That’s all I want to do
I’ll write it how it comes out
And only write what’s true
It doesn’t matter not a bit
What people think or say
I’ll write, write,  write forever
And I’ll write in my own way.

Some people write for accolades
Well they do what they do
But me, I write for the joy of it
It’s not for you, or you
What I write may not please others
But that’s not what I write for 
I just write from heart and soul
I come right from my core.

I don’t write for prettiness
I’m not a pretty fellow
I let it all come pouring out
It could be wild or mellow
But it’s all mine, each word is mine!!
Original, I be
No matter what the whole world says
I can only give you me.

    Hi Bindu, unless the poems come from a core of honesty and sincerity they are worth nothing. I think you are like me and don't have too much say in what comes out, your poems just flow from you like a river. I thank you for your kind comments, my friend....peter

    From our talks I knew this was in you! Your straight shooting is what makes you great amigo! I too write with honesty and straight from the heart. It just flows out like a damn that breaks. I have never labored over a poem as they all just seem to fly out of me. Bravo , for your great write! Frank L. Stanton would have surely applauded you my friend!!! I know I do very often....

    Hi Robert, I think that writing poetry is about what springs from your pen at any given moment, that's why I really don't like contests much. I hate to think before I write. I love that flow, it is like a kind of meditation. I really appreciate all those kind comments you write for me, my friend....peter

    It is great that you feel the way you do about writing. There is no point if you write what you're dictate it to. I feel the same way. A well written rhyme of which I have enjoyed thoroughly. Also just to let you know the book will be on its way tomorrow morning, it arrived on Friday morning from Amazon. Hope you enjoy it. I had to inform you here because I could not sent you soup mail.

    Thank you Dave, thy are just what I write on the spur of the moment. I never think about them. one line comes out and then the others just come flowing out, except when i enter contests then I have to think so they never are the same. Thank you, my friend for all the support you give me. You truly inspire me to keep writing these simple songs....peter

    Peter, your works are art. The art of honesty, reality, nature, love, life. They aren't fancy poems, they are vulnerable poems. These are the works that last over time!

    as long as you write like you do, it is ok to be YOU!!! I sure enjoyed this one.

    Hi Cheri. I never really think about what I am going to write, the words just come. I don't even call it poetry. the closest I can get to calling them something is songs, because nearly every one could be played to music. It's never pretty enough to be called poetry. Asalways I thank you for your kind comments, my friend...peter
