My Hidden Voice

Copyright © 2004 - 2017, David Ronald Bruce Pekrul , all rights reserved.

Welcome to my poetry site.

The poet Robert Frost once said, "A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words." And to quote the poet Carl Sandburg, "I have written some poetry that I don't understand myself." Both these thoughts sum up my feelings about my poetry. Some of my poems are from my life experiences, some are works of fiction ("a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness"), and some, well, I have no idea where they came from.

Please enjoy, and as you read, keep an open mind.

Thanks so much,
David Pekrul

During The Times That I Write

During the times that I write,
I can be anyone,
I can march to my tune,
I can beat my own drum,
I can go anywhere,
I can live on a star,
I can do anything,
I can play the guitar.

During the times that I write,
I can say how I feel,
To complain if I like,
Tell my side, make it real,
I can be my own boss,
I can do as I please,
Can be brutally frank,
And at times I can tease.

During the times that I write,
I can feel like a king,
I can open my heart,
Take a rhyme, make it sing,
Be the master, the slave,
Be the joker, the fool,
The magician, the lover,
I can make my own rules....

....during the times that I write.

What Is A Poem?

What is a poem?
But thoughts too hard to express out loud,
Pictures of the imagination,
Groanings of the soul.

Each one paints a picture
Of the thoughts that set us free,
Of turbulence and solitude,
And perfect harmony.

Of one's desires,
Of longings past,
Of future dreams,
And past regrets.

Each one tells a story,
Each one feels the pain,
Heartache, joy, depression,
And not one is the same.
