(bulawayo)

the sender.


Roaming 24/7
Trying to steal what other people write,
Painful as it maybe,
Thousand souls will be waiting for what was stolen
Many lives being changed by these messages
But what does he get.

Does he have no feelings?
Does he rest for a while?
Does anyone care?
Is he being rewarded for his works?
I don't think so.

The helpless souls continue writing
Not for joy
Not for money
But for the love of it.
But what do they get?
And who are they?

    This piece is very interesting. Sometimes I think I'm writing for myself - sometimes I think I'm writing for the world. This poem will make anyone think. (Report) Reply

    Intriguing verse. I enjoy the questioning, but in my own heart I write to purge the confusion inside my head that would drive me crazy if I didn't write it down to sort it all out, gain some clarity. (Report) Reply

    I like this poem. Though can't simply leave it at that. Specifically what I like about it is its questioning. It's dark points proved in questions is what makes it special to me. You've done a good job here! (Report) Reply

    Hmm..although it brings great pleasure when others get enjoyment and wisdom from a writer's works, I think a true writer writes simply for the joy it brings to his own life and the self satisfaction it brings. Interesting poem! (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
