Am I A Writer

Having just seen a post about word count
Caused me to pause to reflect my writing
For it seems if I aspire to be a writer
I’d be reviewing, editing, inspiring.

To become an accepted publisher writer
Is a goal that seems enticing at times
But I realize the dedication and hours
Not just a thinker who on occasion rhymes.

My words come from the feelings I have
I question it being considered an art
For most of my verse falls to the page
As a result of the beat of my heart.

I see the inspiration of many writers
How they cause words and thought to flow
I’m humbled to read the comments and praise
A lowly word bender is all that I know.

    A bender of words has many possibilities, for it is always possible to forge, and fold a thousand times, to then forge and fold a thousand time more, to shape ones mettle in lines and words. For what you write carries far, and we all need to listen. Top writing Greypoet, top of the shelf.
