    Still working on this one

    but think I've nailed down the chorus to a Country love song about a cheating wife: In good times and in bad I don't care 'bout the fun she had. In sickness and in health Our love's our real wealth. So 'til death do us part She'll remain in my heart.

    Farmers feed cities And cities stock farms

    And it's all held together By the highway's long arms So if you work in a factory or field It doesn't matter what tool you wield Whatever you make by the end of the day Gets packed up and shipped away (Chorus) If you have a job Or if you like to shop You'd be out of...

    I've been passionate about writing poetry

    and songs, I've been writing since 6th grade, the poem was called “Words, Words, Words”. It was about being bullied and feeling like it was a terrible relationship, but it was a friendship. Then I shut myself in my journals, an wrote until I felt free.

    I have always been a bit funny about showing my poetry and songs. I used to write a lot a good few years ago but now I look back on it and cringe. However, sometimes I write something that I just love and want to keep forever. I have all my poems written down and stored in a...

    As I begin a brand new year With many friends

    and loved ones near, Kissing during chimes the one I hold most dear, It seems odd that I would now be overcome with fear. There's too much to do and left to know, Seeds to nurture so solutions grow; But a comfort to the current flow And no plans to let go. But as the war in my...

    I never understood how to express my feelings

    in the socially acceptable way so I kept it all to myself. And then I began writing them down and realized there was a rhyme scheme to some of my thoughts and voila, a slam poem

    Before anyone panics,

    I'm fine. I've channeled someone else's experience to write this one and incorporated some of the advice from this weekend's jam session to help it flow better. But, to my original point, I'll still be here so there's no reason to worry love, and lover, and lovely one, and...

    I thought I'd try an urban throwdown to compete

    with the country songs about the boys 'round here. It's a work in progress because I'll need to determine if it gets sung like a country song or spoken like urban rap before I can finalise the cadence. And, for a bit of back story, I used to wear a bowler or fedora when I used...
