Right or Wrong, It’s Your Song (Revised)

Today I read these incredible words on Colleen Brown’s “The Chatter Blog” site.

“Tho’ my voice maybe tuneless
Don’t discount my song
My song sings emotion – pitch perfect” … Faherty Brown

Here is the link to Colleen’s article >

And after reading her beautiful quote … a poem that I wrote back in May 2018, now appears to be more meaningful than what I originally thought my words were about.

Right or Wrong, It’s Your Song (Revised)

Who knows the words to your song

Who sings in tune to your song

Who is to say a song is right

Or a song is wrong

It is not their song

It is not my song

It is your song

Right or wrong

And we we all here for the same song

Let us all sing the song

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  2. Your efforts never flag, Ivor. That’s what I like about your: you’re determined. You’d make a hell of a rugby player, lowering your head and plowing through the opposition!!

      1. See! I knew you had the rugby genes in your blood!

        *glancing over at your flag counter* America is beating Oz for rankings. Damn Yanks and their 330 million citizen-readers. *cocky grin*

        Competing against the Americans, we pull out our best weapons, use all the careful cheats we have developed over the years, and deny them the easy scores.

  3. It’s important, for us, to stay true to what we stand for, but, sometimes, we let the noises in from outside of us, and, if we are, easily, affected, by what others perceive us as, then, we lose outlrselves, too, easily.
