Why Not Mine?


In a world with so many good poems, stories and songs

Why would I ever think any of mine would find a home?

I’ve been rejected every time I tried

With each no, a little piece of me died

I wasn’t born to stop, wasn’t born to quit

These words in my head come out like this

I’ll put pen to paper and try another tune

Maybe this one will make it to the moon

Another no will probably come my way

All I know is tomorrow is a new day

Maybe I’ll have to write a thousand more

Before the one that gets me to that open door

I try to be witty, clever and smart

The best ones come when I write from the heart

In a world filled with a million good poems and stories

Maybe this one will be remembered when they are in their forties

In a world filled with a million good songs

Maybe this one will be the one they sing a long

If not maybe it’ll be the next one to pop out of my head

Maybe I’ll be like Bach , be more popular when I’m dead.

    I know this feeling all too much. My problem though is, I never started really pitching my songs. Too scared I guess, afraid I don’t have the determination to carry on until “the one”. I remember reading in a book one time when the author said his friend is the best songwriter you will never hear because he’s afraid to take that chance.

    1. Yes I agree, I am trying by posting some songs I wrote on here but they are only lyrics. I can’t write the music to go with the lyrics. Need a partner. Thanks for the follow and your comments. Do not fear. It gets easier once you do start sharing and as long as I write what God puts in my head, it doesn’t matter if anyone else likes it. I write for Him. I would like people to hear them though.

        I don’t know if you are a member of any song writing forums but if not should check them out. Become a part of the community, offer constructive help, let them know your strengths, and they might ask you to partner up.

        I look forward to seeing more from you.
