According to Bex, I need to keep writing and posting new poems and, as I did say that I’d written two more in the past week, I have another one to share with you this evening (it may be a different time of day for you, depending on where you are in the world). This would’ve been my original second choice to be read-out at college. Again, it lacks the emotion behind ‘Courage‘.
One point I think I forgot to mention last time was that, when asked about how we approach and create poems, I responded to say that my poems come from thought, where as short stories and born of experiences. Poems are more spontaneous, for me at least.
Before I start, I feel inclined to mention that I thought about sharing this on Facebook (under my real name) to see how people might respond. But, as it’s appearing here, I doubt I’ll do that, for the risk of drawing too much attention.
‘Did you Know It?’
If I told you I could write
Would you stay, without a fight?
To those who do not know
There is a world I’ve yet to show
All the time
In my mind
Yes, I can rhyme!
You’d like to know
Withhold your opinions
Perhaps I’ll show
To learn the truth
That’s all I have
