I wrote this poem to celebrate everyone who reads it as we are all writers of some sort. Whether you are a renowned author, a stay home at mum, entrepreneur, student etc, everybody writes. We publish what we write in various mediums of communication in print form, audio-visual form or in the hearts of men.
Welcome to the writers world.

Who are you
I am a writer and, a musician of some sort

I make melody with words

I cause words and emotions to dance rhythmically

My talking drum is my paper

Beating words out of the Djembe is my art.

I am a fisher of words

I fish in the ocean of thoughts

Paddling far to where the heavens meet the earth

To drop my net into the deep sea of memories

To feed the hungry souls of men.

I am a scribe

My quill is made of steel

I live to write

I write to live

Merchandising utterances is my life

Chiseling words into the marble

of men’s heart is my call.

My work is never finished

Every time I finish writing

I start writing

When I am satisfied

I get dissatisfied.

I am a a rehabilitator of ghosts

I exhume buried reflections
The ghosts of words

Embalmed in deep thoughts
The imaginations of a writer

An undertaker of some sort.

That’s why
When I am lonely

I am not alone

When I sleep

My soul is word awake

Exploring the graves in my memory

Making dead words live again.

This is the writer’s life

Men who sleep whilst being awake

Intermeddling with the seen unseen
In the land of inspirations

Where scribbling and scrawling rules
Where penmanship
is the only game in town.

Psa 45:1 To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim, for the sons of Korah, Maschil, A Song of loves. My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the PEN of a ready writer .

I’ve never seen a father who dances the way you do at the sound of a good music and when I look at your son and his achievements in playing keyboard, am not surprised where he inherited those skills. Nice lovely poem sir.
