An Influence a nine year old has on me
By David Smith July 20, 2015
Had the honour to meet a young rising star
Loved his enthusiasm, those sparks will go far.
An hour of uninterrupted conversation all about
Mapping the logic for poetry to come out
Laying the foundation and setting the stage
Coming up with a story as a writer becomes of age
That was the joy, to know a nine year old boy.
His desire to express, like a brand new toy.
Opened up like a parachute, as thoughts came out in ink
Brainstorming of ideas, a nine year old makes a link
O to be caught up in the youth of today.
And be a positive influence, on what a child has to say.
It’s the human connection, the contact with life
People building, there is power and might.
Had the honour to meet a bright rising star
Our adults of the future, an encouragement by far.
