i chose to scribe

I’m sorry but I chose to scribe I’m running out of words I really wish I figure out how to set this To you I was never the child you wanted I can’t face you into the eye because of my shame I extinguished all the family flame I was to be the yellow rose of the family garden But I chose my path The desires of my heart parted with your expectations I know it hurts to yield reeds in from maize seeds All your efforts to customize your son blew away To me as well it is just like a live surgery Leaving you ways I never wished but what doesn’t kill us is good for us all I might be leaping in the dark but I’m in the right direction My heart follows it desires A pilot would have been, politician or even An optician for my knowledge is like a field I cultivate it in my own way But my mind and heart are in the people. I believe arts are a voice for the voiceless community In media and arts lies the power of words Standing up for the people, being their comforter Motivator and activator if possible ... Thus why I chose to scribble... ...COLLEN GAGA

Collen Gaga, ,Welcome to Poetry soup, I hope you enjoy the community. Here, you will find friendly poets who enjoy supporting one another. I myself, enjoy reading and commenting those who want to be read. The only time I give constructive criticism is when a poet desires it. However, if for some reason the poem is not my field I will guide you to someone who is more qualified than I. Stop by and read one of my poems if you like. My poems are not perfect, but I have a feeling you might like one. I encourage you to check out the contest page and read to receive comments. Tell me a little about your poetic skills if you like. It will be my pleasure to follow and read every poem you post from here on :) We are Lucky To Have you. Your New Poet Friend @-> LINDA <-@

I like what you are saying and many here on Soup will relate to its theme! My favourite line is "I believe arts are a voice for the voiceless community" YES!!! And I know of no poet who's family understood the need to craft verse. It's a sad truth. This is why online communities like Poetrysoup are formed... in a way, we become brothers and sisters. Only a poet understands why we must "scribble" as you say. Thank you for sharing your work. I hope you enjoy Poetrysoup. Welcome!
