MY OWN WAY
I do- not have to look for loneliness
It finds me everyday,
Although you may find this sad
I love my solitude in my own way.
My thoughts are many and varied
I do love company for an hour or two,
But then I wan't to return to loneliness
Which I doubt will excite you.
You see it's never complicated
It's true on occasion can be boring,
But not if you have my train of thought
I prefer solitude to peoples roaring.
Mr Writing and I have some arguments
Maybe about the weather today,
Or it could be about any subject
As long as it doesn't interfere shall we say.
It could be pessimistic, totally sad
We have to confer on this line of thinking,
Because Mr Subconscious may block or blur
If it upsets Mr Computer he usually starts blinking.
Mr Writing usually like happy themes
With rainbows or poems with a twist,
Clever writing about people and places
On this theme he loves to insist.
I mean we can't please all the world
Although we can come up with a variation,
Variety is the spice of life they say
But it all depends on the concentration.
No lonely isn't being lonely
Not in my world of words,
Because I have also got my solitude
To enjoy the beauty and the birds.
I may recieve the occasional phone call
I may pick their brain for a line or two,
Most of them don't know that of course
Until they read it they are the same as you.
There is always fun and excitment in writing
To create lines that bring a smile and elation,
It's a magic gift of imagination and life
About the things around us that cause a sensation.
You can write about the humble
You can write about the rich,
The world is a writers playground
You just have to take time to sew each stitch.
