Born to Rhyme

With my words I love to play
rhyming everything I say
inside my head words squawk and rage
'til they're released upon the page.
It fills my heart with pure delight
to watch them growing as I write.

Oh how I love to make words rhyme
arranging them in metered time
until I have a perfect line
it sends chills up and down my spine
and I am blessed with endless joy
to use this gift that I employ.

Some of the things I write about
I know must leave some minds in doubt.
"Not good enough" some must claim
but that's ok I feel no shame.
I'll still write the way I do
and to my heart I will be true.

My knowledge of great works is small
in fact I don't know much at all
and I would never dare profess
to be a gifted poetess
'cause when it comes to poetry
I write just what comes naturally.

Born to rhyme, that is my game
and that is all you'll hear me claim.
To me this game is so much fun
it is my picnic in the sun.
It may sound lame or even sappy
but that's all right it makes me happy!

You and I think alike on this subject of writing poetry. I know my limits in the talent dept, compared to so many gifted artists that we all know and love, but all that matters is if it comes from the heart. Your poetry rocks, Robin, because it comes from your heart. Your heart is a wonderful source of inspiration to us all. ~ Love, Carrie

This is lovely Robin and who wouldn't like what you write. You write with beauty and a heart driven by love, wanting to be set free. The poem rhymes sweetly just like the the hand that penned it. Great job Robin.
