I'd like to say thanks to all my readers for lifting me up when I needed it. Including my friends.


As I try to write my poems,

No I'm doing it from afar.

People who are reading them,

Are the ones that are the stars.


It's the ones who leave the comments,

That make me smile and laugh.

Being dyslexic writing wasn't for me,

All those lovely people reading them.

Seems to have set my mind and body free.


Plus I write the stories nobody knows,

As stories grow a conscience of their own.

Poems appears belays my dreams my fears,

From tiny thoughts the seeds are grown.

As the ideas flow so the insanity appears,

Try as hard as I might they start to disappear.


Yet giving up on them is giving up on me,

So I like to thank the ones I cannot see.

The one's that like to read my rhymes,

For them I will try to carry on writing.

To continue scribbling for the time.
