You do good if you simply try. The more I read the more I fuss Statements made beyond eternity bond How can a man have heaven inflow And not have a voice in the world Words so frugal and frail Yet defines the true meaning of life Cash flow or not in the singing bone Eternity will hear my royal rhymes For I will sound it to the hearts of men And they will hail it even in silent graves Fret not oh poet of our time For money goes with the one with words The one who has a tale within And will tell it whether paid or not….
It is awesome to see you love words Now make it also your your swords True, you can move mountains If you speak on real things for the world is today in shambles Are you ready to light those candles? Be you the change you wish to see This gold must you now dig For our words are the only flowers left In this world that is now full of theft. Seems we all good in this and if we take it more seriously, we could earn little money from it I Bet you. The thing is how can we take our poems out to the public and sell. I Appreciate reading that more than words can say!
These days its so hard to earn a quick dollar…Theres no money in poetry so why even bother…Trusting these websights gets harder and harder…Anyone can screenshot and claim to be author. What we need is to brainstorm together…Come up with an idea thats original and clever…. A website that provides others with templates…those who may lack that poetic essence… For any occasion any event…. Goodluck…Remeber Me… Brooks Barker…. Kerman CA. This is the best poem on here so far!
