I am holding in my hand,

the most wonderful gift of all,

just words on paper to you,

but words that make me stand tall,

on one piece of paper,

a simple poem I wrote,

the answer to a topic,

but now, the words seem to float,

off the page, right up to my eye,

for me to take them all in,

these pieces of paper you see,

are like notes from the mandolin,

one is an award, for creative writing they say,

when I wrote the words, they just came from my heart,

did not think of them as words that I created,

words on paper to show these guys right from the start,

I am what I like to call, an impromtu writer,

you give the title or subject and I come through with the words,

but no matter what I think, the main thing is this,

I am holding words on paper that mean the world to me,

and if someone takes offense to it, well then my butt you can kiss.

Bravo...and wow...you did that so gracefully, cough, cough...not like some of those poets who go for the throat with all them curse words. who shall remain mindless, oops, i mean nameless but one has the initials dr , if you get my drift. signed, dr (another one, not the one mentioned above.)

Renee'-I love your candor and the direct way your writing gets to the heart of the issue. This poem describes the life of the writer; and I have told a few critics to Kiss My Ass, in my own time. No one has any idea who we are, how we truly see the world, or what our words mean to us. No one has the right to put down someone else's writing-that is why sites like Post Poems are so refreshing, because it is about people and writing, without all the bullshit. Take care, and thanks again for your wonderful comments about my poems. Best wishes, Robert
