One Hundred Poem by David Harris

One Hundred

Rating: 5.0

To all those who have read my poems,
this poem is just for you.
This is my hundredth poem this year
and I feel like celebrating too.
You see for years and years,
I did not want to write anymore,
until I came along here and met all of you.
For some reason I cannot explain,
you took me under your poetic wing.
You made me want to write again,
with your comments by the score.
You brought life back to me,
took my hand,
and guided me from the wilderness,
from which I ran.
You gave me injection,
and my confidence once more flowed.
My pen was put to paper again,
and out the poems came,
one after the other,
but never one the same.
I took a little time out to write a novel too.
All this and more is all thanks to you.
Without that hand of friendship,
which you’ve all shown to me,
I’d still be wandering like a lost soul,
in that wilderness out there.
Therefore, I am taking this opportunity
with this my hundredth poem this year,
to send you a special thanks,
from the bottom of my heart,
to each and every one of you out there.


c o n g r a t u l a t i o n s, indeed my friend...and a very kind gesture from the class act you have shown yourself to be, here! The Century Benchmark was something i never thought i'd see 13 months ago, when i first came here with but a small fistfull of scribbles...But theres a contagios & creative magic about this place, and you nailed it spot-on...It is we, the members who lift each others gift, to places we had never been to, before we came here! We will expect, of course, that you bless us with another c-note's worth of verse, by Summers end! lol! FjR

YES! I found it. What a wonderful tribute you've written here with so much content to dwell on...Words, if put to pen, can at times possible save one...or, stop them from screaming or--whatever. Marvelous and thank you to you too.~~~marci.xo
