Writing For Myself

Have you ever wanted to be a poet...
You have no talent, and you know it...
But you keep rhyming words along...
Trying to write that perfect song...

Your friends say your poems all suck...
Find another way to make a buck...
But you just keep on writing anyway...
Because you feel you have something to say...

Writing allows me to meditate...
It brings me so much peace and joy...
It allows me to go into my own world...
A serenity no one can destroy...

So I may not be much of a poet...
But I enjoy rhyming a word or two...
While you may not ever want to buy my book...
This is just something I like to do...

I don’t care if you don’t like my poetry...
I don’t care if you don’t buy my book...
I write my poems just for myself...
Not to put money in my pocketbook...
