Things Missing...?

-I write of things that interest me,
-About the 'cards' that I've been 'dealt'.
-But worry that some doing so,
-Show need of psychiatric help...

When someone reads your work
And responds, please be courteous
And reply in kind, thanks.

I'm not the limerest that some are here
so, I can't say hooray
But it sounds like a limerick
that I have heard
somewhere along the way
I'll guess it's good, and I'm hoping so
but I don't know
and I want one with my beer

Writing purely for oneself, is the ultimate in defensive posture.

-but more so and above you know
-are those where help will not arrive

My mind and me.
Hello UW welcome along,

If not now when!
Someday I'll be a poet.

But yeah you’ll find yourself exposing some layers that is for certain. I ask this question, are you really writing for others? I’m not. My ego likes to be told what I write is good. It doesn’t get bruised very easily with criticism because I need the outlet and I know it’s a healthy coping mechanism.

We are all in need of some therapy friend,
I truly believe this.
