A Poem Per Day

When trying to figure out what theme I wanted to go with for my poetry book, I wrote a lot of different poems. There are a variety of verses that I created that described my feelings about life and everything in it.

Since deciding the theme, I couldn’t figure out what to do with all the other poems I wrote. First, I pondered that I should wait until I released The Good, The Bad & The Ugly to see how well it did, and I could add the others to a later book.

Finally, I thought maybe it would be better if I shared them so all of you could see the journey I took to get to my final decision. So until the release of The Good, The Bad & The Ugly I will try to share a poem each day for all of you.

I believe you deserve a treat while you wait for the book to come out.

Until next time,

Peace & Blessings

I Bet You Think This Is About You

the people who played me

the people who saved me

the people who blamed me

the people who changed me

the people who fought me

the people who taught me

the people who deserted me

the people who converted me

the people who shoved me

the people who loved me

I thank you for your presence

and the part you played

negative or positive

You were an aid

And I was swayed

which means every story I tell

pass or fail

how I’ve grown to be

what I’ve come to see

spinning the wheel of fortune

or playing double jeopardy

I don’t mean this selfishly

but everything I write 

is all about me
