Poetic Dan

It's not a crime to rhyme

I'm sure it will be fine after a little rhyme

This responsibility was a choice of mine


It will swell up, then swell down

Always to leave without a sound


Many chores come under this list

When it feels difficult just to exist


With the breath of my words

I release and let go of this hurt

    It is amazing how words written down can take the hurt and sorrow from your body and mind. It is so therapeutic to write. Keep it up Dan.

      This train is never going to quit, this ship is sailing.
      Never a word hiding!
      Always appreciated my friend

      Yes, writing thing down can help. Pity I was singing at the time. That's enough to cause anyone to wobble - out of utter agony! lol.

        That could always turn into a sway 😉
        Always appreciated
        Much peace and respect

        What's written down is silent
        Till someone gives it voice

        Let's start shouting

        • Poetic Dan

          Yes! My friend, Next Wednesday I'll be saying it over an open mic to hopefully start taking my own advice 😉

          Always appreciated

              You've really come to terms with the aid poetry to self help and healing Dan.
              Now its a tool in your sophisticated "life's toolbox" and you are well on ya way to mastercraftmanship.

              You have inspired me today to write a piece which i shall publish tomorrow.

              • Poetic Dan

                Brilliant and your mastercaftmanship has sparked of something I was thinking yesterday, such an inspirational crew!

                I truly thank you for seeing and reminding me of my own transformation.

                Always appreciated
                Much peace and respect
