The Reason I Write - Poem by Francis Duggan

There are always things for to write of every day
The rhymes always seem to keep coming my way
And though my worth as a rhymer i have reason to doubt
No shortage of things for me to rhyme about
Since they do feel worthy of literary note
I leave it to others to call themselves poet
Though self praise is no praise it does seem to me
We all see things differently would you not agree?
For some see self promotion as quite a good thing
The people their own praises willing to sing
Though financially poor and a stranger to renown
The rhymes come to me and in note book i write them down
And email them into an internet blog site
For my own enjoyment the reason i write.
