In Me There's The Need - Poem by Francis Duggan

Some who believe that for one's writings one ought to receive pay
Have told me i ought to give rhyming away
But to their advice i never pay any heed
To keep on penning rhymes in me there's the need
If i said i would quit rhyming that would be a lie
Since i hope to be doing it till the day i do die
My better days in life to the forever gone
But for as long as i can rhyme i will keep rhyming on
I never refer to myself as a poet
Nor am i one worthy of literary note
But despite what some who give me free advice do say
What i enjoy doing why should i give away
To keep penning rhymes in me there's the need
Without it in my life i would feel worse off indeed.
