the world of poetry

I love it here
it is the place
to try my hand
and show my face
but I’m afraid

there are many who
have much to say
write lovely lines
I read and pray
that I may too

and know my words
might touch a heart
or prompt a laugh
or tear apart
some thought that’s blind

to take this road
a daunting way
to meet and greet
but come what may
I’ll play my part
make bid to stay
