TO BE READ! - AND I AM BEING READ!

there are those who write
they be come - famous
have agents and all that
publishers - elbow others aside
pay a weekly fee
to insure the writer is tied down

of course there are those who write
as more an hobby - not untalented
some are rather good at writing
yet go on unreckoned!
yet - undaunted - carry on!
they catch the eye of agents
who sure let publishers know
of the the writer
some writers become famous
other writers hardly get to be
known of!
yet are widely read- by those
those who read!
there more readers - than are known!

there are writers who are awarded
prizes
one such writer who won a proteges prize
lorded and all of that
yet how many books were sold?
I'll tell your true - TWENTY BOOKS!
so dear writers of poetry or of prose!
do not despair - do not write your self off!

I - The Dyslexic Wordsmith - is one who's never been published.
never to be at that!
I am read globally! Should I tell you just how many have read
my works - you would not believe me, should I say!
Since I went public - that is put a link to my page - on to a social media site.
I have become greatly read -globally!
To quote Terry Pratchett '' who do I write for? '' ; '' I WRITE FOR THOSE WHO READ! ''

In that I am a success! Being read - my hopes are being realized!
I can write in my own way - no agent - no publishers - hassling me!
I AM FREE TO BE ME!
Expressing my self - typing out my works as they come to mind!

I HAVE A FREE MIND!

I’ve never heard you speak but I recognize your voice. I’ve “listened” to you through your poetry and your stories for over twelve years because of Poetbay. I enjoy and appreciate what you say and how you say it as you write and post here. Good on you, Ken.
