If you have heard of the delightfully heartfelt poem ‘Dust if you Must’ by Rose Milligan, then you will be able to relate to my retake on the same.
Read the original here, if you haven’t!
And now, for my twist on the same poem 😀
Blog if you Must
Blog if you must, but wouldn’t it be better
To write when you want to
Instead of when you have to
Relish the luxury of want over should?
Blog if you must, but there’s not much time,
With other blogs to visit, comments to write;
Trolls to bear, and naysayers to hear;
Food to cook and a home to set right.
Blog if you must, but Life calls your name
With a whisper in the wind and thunder in the skies
News anchors to endure, Bickering kids to separate
These days always call your name!
Blog if you must, and keep in mind,
Your words can only do so much
They can inspire, tickle and do some such;
Your blog will live on, even while you rust.
