Where's my Audience?
Where’s my Audience?
By Tony DeLorger © 2011
I cannot believe just how little I’m read,
considering what my willing readers have said.
Their comments and accolades give me great hope,
that my words will endure and my future has scope.
I write with a passion about subjects I know,
and aspire to the greatness of a Thomas or Poe.
My work is consistent and a quality worth,
a great more readership than HubPages has birthed.
I’ve played with one hundred some three times in months,
and tweaked my tags to get four hundred in lumps.
But stats of consistency elude my words,
and don’t know how to deal with it, my logic absurd.
Is there a trick to link with an audience in droves,
as I know that my writing once read will evoke.
A response of connection I have made with so many,
to increase my statistics and responses to any.
It’s not that I’m arrogant or need pats on the head,
I just want an audience before I am dead.
I’m sitting here working my butt off to be,
discovered and published with success I can see.
So tell me, am I selfish or has my ego taken flight,
to wish that my words were more read and in sight.
As insecure as writers and artist can be,
I’m relatively stable, just want answers, if you please.
