Get Rid Of The Advertisements

It started with a Verse
 
.
For me it was nine years ago
midst inner conflict growing
I had an urge to write and so
I let the words start flowing
.
When words speak we have a choice
as with other things
Ignore or use our inner voice
express the thoughts it brings
.
Through early poems Iíd create
my stanzas built to rhyme
The feedback I received was great
this was no waste of time
.
Creativity - it strikes us all
and happens through the seasons
To write, for me a lifetime call
I had so many reasons
.
My verses became longer
with poetic series next
At first Iíd write the words longhand
before I typed the text
.
The series led to stories which
left poetry behind
I didnít see this as a glitch
my writing style Iíd find
.
Short stories to anthologies
collections of my writing
On with a novel, Iíd next ease
to write prose was exciting
.
Yes, nine years on, my time Iíve used
my effort isnít slowing
Twenty titles Iíve produced
and on my website showing
.
I recall my early verse
for me where it began
Even now I still rehearse
Each word must fit the plan
.
My latest is released this week
another eBook title
Fame and fortune I donít seek
but words to me are vital
