Poetry - Poem about 'Substantial part duplicated'

Duplicate Content

Source

What lies deep in your memory filing cabinet?

Actually, we read that much as writers and retain that much information that it actually isn't too difficult to write something you think is all your own idea when effectively you have just regurgitated something you have stored away in your memory filing cabinet.

Substantial part duplicated

I’ve been trying to write a hub

Quoted straight from my heart

But every time I try to post

It tells me that its duplicated

in some substantial part

So somewhere on the world wide web

There is another me

Trying to get a message out

For all the world to see

How terribly frustrating

That I cannot talk to her

And tell her that I know everything

That we both want to share

That if we work together

We might get our message out

And hopefully our laptops

Won’t feel it

when we scream and shout.

I get the same feeling when I write, don't know if i've read a similar article and i'm duplicating it, sometimes I wonder if it's people who have passed over sending messages through my writing.

oh i like it very much Leni. Here's my take on this topic and a fun little diddy i wrote on the topic just now Enjoy!! :) lvh

I met someone at the theater today,

"I'm sure I know you" she was inclined to say,

Somewhere, somehow, my damn little twin,

I hear she's in town, pretending she's kin.

I told the lady twasn't me she saw,

then I waited for a pregnant pause.

she asked me her name "Oh could it be Sue?"

i winked my eye and said, Really, I haven't a clue!"

There is a lot of truth here in these words, I too feel this way. I, not being very articulate feel this quite often , thank you for sharing.

Like writing in the mirror, huh? They say we all have a duplicate spirit out there somewhere. I guess yours decided to take up writing too! Interesting poem. Thanks for sharing. WB

In my minds eye

I can see it so very clear

But when it comes to writing it

My claims to it are not there

Words

Sentences

Paragraphs

Punctuations

Editing

And DOUBT

Plaque me throughout

But finally finishing a project

Helps to clear the cobwebs out

So In my own defense

I'd like to make it known

Although others before me

Have made the words their own

I have a common theme to it all

Learning

Writing

Critiquing

Makes Authors of us

Great and small

Thank you leni sands
