    Not concerned
    About meter and time
    Not concerned
    About breakage and rhyme
    All I know
    Is the poem is mine

    Mine to share
    With those who care
    Love and life
    Stress and strife
    Things commercial
    Political and social
    All God's creatures great and small
    The changing of seasons
    From winter to fall

    What's on my mind
    In my soul
    In my heart
    A circle of thoughts
    Through my pen are realized
    Read if you must
    Don't criticize

    Preach!!!! Who knows what's in your heart, and who can tell it better than you....If a person don't like a piece, they can just keep quiet..............Flow on poet...I dig your scribes!!

    BE.....you know what I feel about "wordsmiths"

    Those who uphold "form" and "style", who insist that iambic pentameter is the rhythm of life itself....those who never read anything more than a sonnet, or less than 17 syllables... those believe the best verses ever written are found inside Hallmark cards....

    Those who would force the flow and therefore fake the funk
    know nothing about the heart & soul, the birthplace of a poem....

    And they'll never know the inside of a true Poet....or be blessed by you...
