i am a poet...i write when the inspirations hit...at any time of the day or night
i do not have control over my topics...they dont seem to care about my fears
do i write this...it is so strong in words...how will people perceive my words
but the inspirations do not seem to care...they demand to be written any way
 

my topics vary...from the daily activities...to the evils of our world...to the humorous
some ideas seem controversial...but they dont care...they want it written...now
they have their purpose...as the time dictates...maybe somone needs to know
but i am only a tool...one a higher being has deemed necessary to convey

so i try to do my best...convey the message i am compelled to write
and hope it reaches the party it was intended for...after all...i am only His tool
deep down...i know i wont always know if the message was delivered or not
something inside says it is so...i never miss my mark...so i humbly write away

knowing somewhere...someone waits for my words to be written...my message delivered
for i am only one of His messengers...speaking a different way from others of my trade
but none the less...His messenger all the same...hoping my words reach their mark
writing my inspirations as they come...His humble...and sometimes frightened tool

You have aptly described what every writer feels, Mary Etta, the compulsion to write no matter what the topic happens to be...nicely done...

Hugs,
Anna

Being his, “tool,” scares me. Sounds very much like mind control like the church does.

I enjoyed your poetry what you think, not what, “his,” thinks.

AMEN! 'TIS ALL THAT ONE CAN DO...BUT PEN...WHAT HE TELLS YOU TO'. A FINE OFFERING FROM A POET'S HEART, MIND AND SOUL. GOD BLESS YOU AS YOU CONTINUE TO BE STRENGTHENED BY YOUR FAITH IN HIS LOVE. THANKS FOR SHARING. JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

Mary,
A muse is like that.
