Most Important

Poem By Heather Z. Hanna

My inspiration well it seems is running dry
And Poesy of late she keeps passing me by
And though I never did pen what you would call good stuff
My writing efforts as I age becoming more rough.

For more than three decades addicted to rhyme
To many that would seem a huge waste of time
Since they only ask you how much you get paid
And for penning your rhymes how much money you've made.

When you say you only write for a hobby they don't seem impressed
And in you they quickly seem to lose interest
How much money you earn to them only count
As a hobby to their kind to nothing amount.

A hobby to their kind is time spent in the pub
Or a few drinks with their mates at their local bowls club
And if you tell them for a hobby that you paint or write
They look at you as if you are not quite right.

A Ballad Of Wasted Years

I have walked through tougher Harlem where few strangers dare to go
And I've been in London City in the rain and in the snow
And I've worked in inner Melbourne in the searing summer heat
And believe me if I tell you I have earned the bread I eat.

A Beautiful Person With A Heart Of Gold

She sees things of beauty in all that she see
And what's beautiful to her seems ugly to me
What to her is a flower to me is a weed
We do seem so different so different indeed.

The Sound Of Laughter

The sound of laughter is a thing of beauty for laughter spreads the very gift of joy
That people they are drawn to happy people is not that hard for to understand why
Since everybody wishes to be happy and laughter it spreads happiness around
And only the heartless could not like the sound of laughter for laughter is a very happy sound,

The Admirable Mo

My admiration for him it only does grow
For a braver one than he is of i may never know
A paraplegic due to a motor accident forty years ago
Now in his early sixties the admirable Mo
