A Little More Poetry - Poem by Sandra Osborne

Funny, I’ve been writing
For a very long time.
I’ve written about love
I’ve written about hate
I’ve written about war
I’ve written about peace
I’ve written about snow
I’ve written about time
I’ve written about the meaning
Of my death.
And I’ve written some lines
That I should have erased,
I’ve written about running,
And leaving this place.
I’ve written a thousand words
Trying to understand men
And another thousand
To understand sin.
But mostly I write
To understand life
To feel what its for
To know what is right.
And the few more words
That I have In my pen,
Is all I have;
My poems and my friends.

    Sandra you are one of the best poets on this site. That is why you are being targeted by the one virus. If your work was bad...They wouldn't bother with you.
    So take it as an honour and hold your pen poised as you continue to create great works of poetry.

    I gave you ten as always for your poems. They are fantastic.

    Well, looks like the slamming trolls are having their fun, it's real hard to pick on an old diabetic woman, ain't it? Anyone feeling like the BIG MAN for doing this? ? Well baby, you ain't. (Report)Reply
