Poetry in My Life
Poetry to me is like an obsession
I write almost every day
There's nothing like a writing session
An upbeat verse to brighten someone's day
I plan to write 'til I can't any more
Until I am out of poems or my wrist gets too sore
I hope this doesn't happen while I'm still living
For when I'm alive I'd like to be giving
Joy and happiness through my poetry
It's the one thing that keeps me free.
