A depiction of how it feels to be a writer!

WORDS

 

Words, words, words;

Why so many, many words;

What can I, possibly, say,

That wasn't uttered, yesterday;

Can I hope that, as you're reading,

You'll understand what I'm feeling;

I'll take you to a place,

Time will never be able to erase;

I want you to be beside me

And to see what my memories see;

Inside my dreams, I will take you

And there is nothing you need to do;

Hold on to my feeble words,

So, I may show you all my worlds;

My hope is that you may grow

To understand what I show;

I have lived hard and long,

But I've learned to be very strong;

I would love to ease your pain

Or be a ray of sunshine, during rain;

Your smile will be my fortune,

As I drink water, at the oasis beyond this dune;

I don't need you to agree with me;

Just, allow my words to be free;

Words, words, words;

Why so many, many words?

 

     Afterwards,

 

          You'll, always, have "my" words!

Our focus is dedicated to our own lifetime, creating our own words through what we have studies of others. It is impossible to read all the works of everyone else that ever existed, but it is essential that we add to that sea of ever expanding ideas, giving ourselves the ability to influence others through the power of our words..

I enjoyed reading this. The construction and plot went over very well, flowing nicely and ending perfectly. I liked it! Thanks for sharing:)

words are a vehicle which you used to cut in and out of the page like a racing thought running to the finish line in your life written to the writer's pace......good stuff

I really enjoyed the repetition with the "words". It really set the flow of the poem and made it enjoyable to read. Gotta say though, I wasn't thrilled about the over-excessive placement of the commas in the third and fourth lines. It did set the flow of reading I guess... it's probably just my firm editor bits about myself that's really against the displacement of commas. Either way... very nice poem. I really liked it.

Yes, it's interesting how, when writing, you are often struck by a desolate thought that it's all old hat! But then, it is consoling to ponder that your words, when released, will achieve a longevity far beyond the transient nature of your own existence.
This is very good, and is uplifting, I think. Important to hang on to the notion left behind by this poem. And important, too, that your own words are respected enough at least by your own self!

"Just, allow my words to be free" is such a wonderful line. I feel this always as I write, this strong feeling to let the words flow as if they have their own life. The entire poem is well written and I have enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing.

This poem had a nice flow and led the reader along interestedly. The punch line for me was ‘Just, allow my words to be free’ Words take you to a place where the writer wishes and this you have brought out very well, the power of words!

Yes words can add quickly in a day. I like words myself. In my job we repeat the same words over and over. I get desperate for a real conversation. I like this poem. Made me think this morning. Thank you. A very good poem.

You give us a reason to speak.. that words are so much more than mere letters and lines, but rich with emotion and love and wisdom. Beautifully spoken!
