Writing For Posterity - Poem by Jonathan Goldman a.k.a JGthepoet
Why do I write Poetry?
The question bothers me,
When asked by others why I write,
So you and I can see
The thoughts I have when I do write,
And what my eyes do see,
I wish to write for you right now,
And for Posterity.
As I do think what words to write,
With my pen and paper near,
The words flow slowly through my mouth,
As the end of this poem comes near.
I’m lucky that I can write in verse,
And make the lines scan and rhyme,
And do it often, and daily too,
Not now, but time after time.
My thoughts do tumble line by line,
The flow does come to me,
Until twenty lines have been written down,
For you all to see.
