    Struggling with words

    Sometimes the Poet struggles to find the words that fit.
    Sometimes the words come easy sometimes it's bit by
    bit.

    Sometimes the speaker struggles to get the phrasing right.
    Struggling with words both morning and night.

    Sometimes the words struggle with themselves trying to find
    where they belong.
    Is that right? Is this wrong?

    Struggling with words you may have never heard.
    It is every writers plight, but the outcome is pure
    delight.
    For though our tools are words and pen.
    Each day we write and the struggles begin.

    Not merely an artform it's more like a calling.
    And there is no greater feeling than when
    the right flow is falling.
    Every word finding it's place, brings a smile
    to my face. My struggle with words are not
    in vain.

    Thanks Rasheed for helping me remember...

    the reason I write in the first place...not a hobby, not for
    popularity, not for disparity...it's my calling!

    BLESSINGS ON YOUR HOUSE!

    I loved this....definitely being something i could relate to....many a times i have pressed the delete button to pieces that i thought didn;t show the way I flowed.....but now that i see it is a calling....(thanks fer reminding me) i realize that those same words that i struggle with may be the same words that someone else needs to hear (one of the purposes that I write)

    I knew that I was going to like this after reading the first few lines. I just relate to it, as I suppose we all do. Good one.
