My Thanks to My Readers: A Rhyme With Message

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.

-- William Shakespeare

Quite honestly I never expect to be praised

without a writer's ego I don't have that need

but sometimes I simply get short of amazed

that my stuff may look like something to read.

Namely, it is my own fun to express my mind

and it's your own fun if you're finding it good

however, now I'm not just trying to be kind

as I'm thanking you this only way I could.

I'm thanking you for letting me know

that all the fun has not only been mine

and every single "view" is there to show

that other people reason along similar line.

So I am basically grateful that you exist

and willing to give some attention to my stuff

whether it inspires you or it only makes you pissed

just knowing that you have read it is quite good enough.

We all affect each other in many possible ways

making our reading experience so versatile

some of our work may deserve a praise

but more often it's good to get a smile.

Anyway, thank you, my readers, as few as you are

for making me think it's not merely my solo game

each of you will always be much more of a star

for writing never tried to make big my name.
