my pen my guitar

A Poem by keith
"

singing melodies

"
my pen
my guitar




my pen my guitar
play chords of rock
play chords blue
singing melodies
words you do not
know or understand
never will it sit
popular
on the charts of favor
if only one hums
my song
then it is the
best one could 
hope for
mindful remembrance

thank you too much

Gee
Do you write the lyrics then add the music or vice versa Keith, or is it a bit of both ?
What a buzz it must be for well known lyricists when audiences of thousands are belting out their words :)

I've never had the skill to play an instrument but I'm jealous. Another art form to watch from afar and just soak it all in. If someone goes for a stroll humming your song then I think thats pretty amazing.

Very true and you're welcome.
Fame is an illusion, If You seek fame it means You are not true to your self and passion. and here my friend... You are true to yourself and your art, You are sincere and passionate about who You are, and believe me, it only takes this to touch others, popular or not... it doesn't matter. and You are welcome :>

its the accomplishment
from thought to finished product
its a product of my job
An humble poem/song,
makes one want to sing along,
to fret those strings,
while penning other things.

Your words are very inspiring, Keith, and hopeful, too, that someone will think enough of them to keep your poems and hum your song … I think most of us wish the same for our poetic efforts, and can relate so very fondly with the essence and spirit of your thought-filled poem.

Thank you as-well, Sir, for sharing your kindred spirit with us! ⁓ Richard🖌

hi keith, an interesting analogy between a writer's pen & his guitar.
writing a song would be as personal as writing a poem & many poems become songs.
