A Happier Tone

A Happier Tone

A Poem by Joshua McNay

Got bored while watching E3 stuff, wanted to write in a happier tone. Turns out that involves me finding stuff that rhymes with tone. it's short and sweet. Enjoy the madness and the rhymes!

I wanted to write in a happier tone,
With hopes, my words could make me feel less alone.
The rhymes I write, from the notepad on my phone,
Are often jumbled, they just need to be honed.
Sometimes I strike that perfect balance, I find the zone,
Rhymes so good, i'm like a dog with a bone!
Like ice cream with multiple scoops on the cone,
A king, where my rhymes are my throne.
No longer monotonous, no longer the drone,
A baby bird, from the nest i've flown.
While my happiness feels like it's on loan,
Poetry is my craft, Rhymes the grindstone.
When I write something I can call my own,
I smile, and I damn sure let it be known!
So while I sit here and write in my happier tone,
A connection is established, and I'm no longer alone.
