What topic should I write about?
To get a good response?
To get the readers blood worked up
and some just nonchalance.
To writers it’s important
when they express a thought.
Of issues that concern our lives
and problems that they brought.
A poet’s words on paper
are put there from the heart.
Opinions of all kinds expressed,
to be torn apart.
Most poetry has themes of love
and being lost or found.
Of love that is forever
or cheating hearts abound.
Myself I write of other things,
issues we face in life.
Of topics that are of concern,
like violence, greed and strife!
Of matters that we all should try,
to correct what is wrong.
Like starting with our families
once more to make them strong.
Of problems people face each day,
emotions and abuse.
I write of things that reach the heart
With truth…and no excuse!
