Feel Free To Share My Hobby - Poem by Mary Nagy

I've never had a hobby...
one that I would share.
I never got excited
cause I really didn't care.

Now I feel the passion
of sharing what I write.
Although I may not have the skill
I surely have the fight.

I use to write in shadows.
My thoughts were just my own.
I never thought they'd find themselves
outside my comfort zone.

But as I'm getting older
I crave the written word
and now it gives me comfort
when I know that I am heard.

I now will claim my hobby.
I say ''I love to write''.
I'll welcome you to read it.
Share my pleasures and my plight.

    Perfect! I am now thinking of sharing my poem about how I have turned to poetry after struggling with motivation to write a story. (Report) Reply

    Thanks for the offer, and I will be honored to share my hobby with you. This passion for the arts is very addicting...thanks for the poetry to bring out our union as one. Great poets that have so much to say, as one poet once told me 'poems are our tears.' (Report) Reply

    Well Mary, it's certainly been found by a lot of other 'writers' so I SUPPROSE it's got to be a good hobby to choose, don't you think. Hope all is well with you. Love ErnestineXXX (Report) Reply

    Well put Mary, well put indeed. I think in some way everyone on this site is seeking to explore the human condition, either to find out more about themselves or the world around them. There are worse hobbies to have. I think some people fret too much about the skills side of the pursuit. A knowledge of brushes and paints does not an artist make. The manner and power of expression does. Of course, I could be wrong. I just play with words and make things up as I along. (Report) Reply

    Nice poem, Mary - Excellent rhyme and meter! I haven't quite figured out whether my love for writing is a passion or a personal curse (wink) .
    Many hugs,
