My poetry is love, love is not for sale.

I give it away.

Whether accepted or not I still trust it

As a gift to say

What I want!  When I pray I do not choose words

To make prayer sound good,

(If I do at times it is not acceptable)

As sincere prayer should

Be a happy, angry, or embittered cry

A cry from the heart.

A cry that makes mute the sounds of nature’s song

Inviting joy to depart!

So, the, words of my song, though brash, brazen,

Or crude will have to do.

Accept or reject or shrug it off, it is done!

Response?  Up to you!

I care not.  Yes, I do!  Your response to

One so insecure

Is important!  I so dislike rejection!

I cannot long endure

The slight of scorn, the mocking, though subdued,

Hurting just a bit

Can never change my mind.  For this is my gift of

Love, this is my gift!

One thought on “NOT FOR SALE

  1. Greetings from Carolina! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to check out your website on my iPhone during lunch break. I love the information you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m amazed at how fast your blog loaded on my cell phone. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G. Anyways, very good site!
