My world is a world filled with books and words. It starts with the Good Book to give understanding and direction So as soon as I get up I send praise up then look up His message for me. I read many books and poems because words  inspire  me. Then I share to make you smile. This is big part of the world of Kevin Bates Poet Author & Speaker

Castle Walls


You sit in your tower looking out,

Wondering what's out in lands afar.

You wont find it behind your castle walls.

You live a guarded life afraid of everything

Beauty & luxury doesn't make happiness,

It comes when you reach out & discover.

I'm a ebony knight yet my world illuminated

I'll paved roads gold line things with silver,

Be showered with roses of many colors.

Hide no more come into my world of love

Yes it's my true feelings for you my dear.

What I do is from the heart & to have yours

You are a princess of a closed off land.

Now it's time to be Queen of my Life.

This world is yours when you come down.
