The Gift Of Writing

Rating: 5.0

There is a word in every poem, one that is so hard to write,
but if you can write one sentence more.
Then the gift is your's to take wherever.
It is a gift, to be able to write, and show what you can do.
Some write a letter, and they think that's hard.
Others write a note, which may seem easy.
It is a gift when out comes a story,
and from that story, becomes a book,
A book that will go on, and on until you write another.
Then you will never want to stop
Writing is no talent it is a gift, a gift of creation,
that only God can give. His greatest creation was Mother Earth,
and too us his gift was love.The gift of writing came from him too.
When he picked you out and placed the pen in your hand.

I write grocery lists and am proud of myself, so whenever I write a poem and it makes sense and says what I meant for it to say, then I am amazed by the talent it took to write, and I know that it is not me writing, but the gift that God gave me. Love this. Scarlett
