Writing Poem by Bonnie Harding


Rating: 3.9

A funny thing about the freedom of speech
For some people it's far out of reach
I open my mouth with words I need to say
But they just don't come out the right way

To say the words and explain how I feel
Is not as easy for me, nor as real
When people talk they don't seem to think
Words have more meaning, written in ink

A pen in my hand, words flowing easily
My thoughts on paper sets my mind free
So for me I think this is my best choice
Because sometimes writing is my only voice

I totally agree Bonnie we tend to speak without adequate thought and often what we say is not what we mean Writingd down our thoughts we have to discipline ourselves and check that what we write conveys as near as possible exactly what we want to say. Probably that is why I prefer formal poetry as the added discipline of writing within fixed parameters makes me choose my words even more carefully Ivor aka poeticpiers

I know what you mean Bonnie...The thoughts are in my head, but don't always make it out of my mouth the way I intend them...sometimes...i just get tongue tied, and feel silly afterwards...writing suits me much better as a form of communication. Great work! Hugs, Dee
