July slipped by - perhaps you, though I sincerely hope not, spent it on worry and concern. Some worry and concern is certainly valid and is good for the poetized and lyricized neurons in your brain and will produce good wordsmithery. I trust you are all well and are writing yourselves out of this prompted morass, and manufactured depression everyone I know seems to be in.(Please don't offer your opinion - I mean it to be rhetorical.)

So how about we be happy and not worry and try a new Song Challenge.
Here is the new word set for August: Wonder Why

If you haven't tried this game - here are the simple rules:
1. Write a song. Don't worry about the melody - we can't hear it so you may use any song you know and write to it.
2. You must use the 'word set' in the refrain/chorus Or in a line of every verse.

That's it.I will always brag on you and post a link to your song in Majestic every month.
Have fun!
The best to you all!

Why is doing what you love the hardest thing to do? Is it because failing what you thought defined you would be too devastating a thing from which to recover? If so, we stay where mere accident has left us.

August challenge
I saw your word set and this came outta me spontaneously. Simple write and only took a couple minutes. No title and not interested in posting it anywhere else.

I do like the time going in circles line though...

If you have to wonder why
I wrote this
You’ve lost me

If you have to wonder why
I stand by you
You’ve lost me

If you have to wonder why
I sing for you
You’ve lost me

If you have to wonder why
I pirouette
You’ve lost me

But you will never see me
Walk away
I will stand by you as you
Wrestle with doubts

One thing is certain
Time is only two hands
Going in circles but you and I
We’re beyond it

If you have to wonder why
I believe in us
You’ve lost me

If you have to wonder why
I subsist
You’ve lost me

But only for this moment
As I take a step closer to you
As I inhale your uncertainties

In this imperfect world

Lock up yer daughters, I'm back heh. Hi both and yes I've posted a blog and some new fiction stuff type of thing. Only just submitted them so it'll be a couple of days yet. I've finally given up on Facebook, it was getting a bit too nasty on there. Good news is that I can go back to my favourite hobby - writing.
Take care y'all.
