The Courage to Write

This information age,

Opinions everywhere,

Some of it rotten,

Yet much with due care.

Regardless the author,

Style or info,

A few common traits,

All writers know.

They take a risk,

With each post,

Putting their name out,

The world as host.

Yet writers don't mind,

Sharing what they know,

It makes them feel good,

To help others grow.

If they give you,

Reason to care,

Acknowledge their work,

Like, comment, or share.

When no value,

Ignore or be kind,

Reflect on yourself,

Then write your own mind.
