To the lord My Greatest Influence

To the lord My Greatest Influence


You have taught me how to write in rhymes

a story's scheme

and to play my voice in rhythm.


Although my writings have been shamefully thrown out


and never to return again


you have given me the strength and ability to make something better.


to write stories that are some much clearer in form

so much figurative language to form


you have given me the chance to write an amazing story


and for this I thank you. Amen.

My family
