A Writer’s Concern - Poem by Vidi Writes

All I need is a few minutes privacy
Let me write to my heart’s content.

Once my writing is published
It becomes public.
Where I have no control over it.
All I need is a few minutes privacy
I can write with care.
Let me pen my views to public,
Let my life not become public.

I don’t crave for name or fame.
Emotions and opinions form my life
Whether they are kept inside or out.
All I need is a few minutes privacy
I can write with care.
Let me inspire, caution the public,
Let this sincere portrait, an asset to public.

I owe an excuse, if my write hurts.
Can’t be slipshod often see my own back.
It’s not a platform to impress the benefactors.
All I need is a few minutes privacy
I can write with care.
Let me not write with a spokesman behind.
Let Logic of life override the magic of words.

All I need is a few minutes privacy
Let me write for the cause of many lives.

    Let me write for the cause of many lives. Poets write for many reasons but for all time we have been the conscience of the nations and perhaps the world. (Report) Reply

    Well Vidi I must say that your last four lines effectively sum up your thoughts!
    But while doing so, your magic of words remain, and do no fade!

    Your voice is one of philanthropical genuinity....I like the theme....its tone, and the repetitioning of the one line...it lends passionate verve & impact to the whole of the work. A job well done, here, Vidi.

    I value all such writings which help the mankind; the only requirement is that the writer writes with complete devotion and after deep thinking. Your instinct towards the humanity is appreciable. A good theme. (Report) Reply

    Well written Vidi. Every writer needs time and privacy to express his/her thoughts and be as original as possible. It is indeed true that once a poem is published it becomes public property. They can interpret it however they like. Nice thoughts, nicely penned.

    Take care
