So who am I that I should write,
And hatch my words to see the light?
If I take time to write and share,
Will words take flight, go anywhere?
What makes some rhymes take off and soar,
While others fall upon the floor?
Is it the clever use of rhyme,
Or making sure words stay in time?
Perhaps it’s words shared from the heart
That sets the words and lines apart.
If words I write share what I feel,
And what I write for me is real,
Perhaps those words that I give birth
Have more validity and worth.
Shared ups and downs along the way
That form the words and what I say,
That share my pain or joy or hope,
I pray help others better cope.
