I am a guitarist
A musical artist
as I sit and I harvest
the sharpest of tunes
Pressing strings
forms the hardest
calluses on my fingers
but they allow me to linger
hours over my task
as my right-hand attacks
what is my latest track
till each digit grows stiff
plucking beautiful riffs
itís a God-Given gift
creating songs from what-ifs
my guitar has known
many tunes left undone
when my strumming
goes slumming
and my mind has succumbed
to the sad realization
thereís more work to be done
but this guitar has wooed
many loves I have Cherished
tugging the strings of their hearts
till our loneliness perished
And it sometimes helps pay
bills that pile up each day
when a gig comes my way
and they pay me to play
I am a guitarist
and the charts are my targets
But this business is heartless
itís a cold-blooded market
thatís left many a carcass
of dreamers to rot
taking all that theyíve got
listing them as have-nots
but itís why I exist
my bridge clamped in one fist
as my fingers persist
seeking out what Iíve missed
till each note brings me bliss
and each chord set adrift
brings a most perfect mix
that leaves listeners transfixed
with the sounds, they have missed
I am just a guitarist
working hard at my craft
playing what my muse drafts
hoping I can extract
music that will attract
fans that I will amass
till I grow old and daft.
It is all that I ask
it is my chosen task
So if I strike a chord
in the depths of your heart
as a listener to my work
let me know, play your part
send me comments, critique me
show me someoneís out there
whose enjoying my music
let me know that you care
for one humble guitarist
who has chosen to share
all that his soul holds precious
to all folks everywhere.
to all folks everywhere.

Matt, you are a complete poet.

It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.
