There's something in the art of words
Which mesmerizes me...
And makes me to accept as fact...
Things I know could never be.
Like... perfect love. How foolish that-
We could to such aspire.
When we all know that human lusts
Of Hell are set afire.
And peace on earth, while you and I
Do wrestle for control?
If it were not so pitiful-
I'd find the concept droll.
Success? and fame? for peasants born?
What folly that would bring.
I find me most successful-
When I merely write and sing.
My song is for my pleasure-
And not for tawdry gain...
I write to cheer up others-
And try to ease their pain.
Please try and understand me-
It may be passing hard...
My only goal in this my life-
Is to be a nameless bard.

And that is quite a noble goal I think...

I suspect that nameless you will not be,
for your writing is now forever to see
  so many out there to see your words
   flock to truth, those human herds

Gunslinger, another excellent verse you've gifted us with, and if this is your goal, then I would venture that you've by far outdone yourself, dear sir.
