I Am Honored - Poem by Siyabonga A Nxumalo

That you took your time
And opened my page.

Though my bio is not catchy,
And there's not profile picture
So you can put a face behind
These writings.

But you took your time
And visited my page.
And for that...
I'm honored.

That you did read my poems,
Even though the titles are not catchy,
And sometimes the wording is not as amazing.
But you read them anyway.
And for that...
I'm honored.

That you wrote your valuable comments,
Your inspiring comments inspred me
To write again, because when you called me
'FRIEND'.....
You put a smile on my face...

Coz to be called by you a friend,
Is an honor to me.

To be part of this amazing site,
To interact with such knowledgeable poets,
To be called a friend by best poets in the world,
And to be able to add my two cents worth comment
On your poems is an honor to me.
I am indeed honored.

    You are the wonderful, because you care to tell you are honored. Keep on writing, it is good for the soul to lighten up what is in there. And do not care if someone like it or not, because you did your best. (Report)Reply

    I dont need a great bio to know someone, or a face to convince you are my friend, even not looking who big your name in your area..i do look your words, its purity that come from honest heart, that gently swipe my mind from feel down as when we talk we found honesty, we meet joy and we meet a sense that tell we a human, same as you are and they are...with feeling and no greedy...after all life is nothing without love to each other, where only peace is our melody and tie our words in poetry_Soul (Report)Reply
