Instead of a Poem
August 2000

by Jackie Hand


It is my sincere desire that you have benefited from the articles I have been privileged to write about my first love; Songwriting. I have always been able to write words and create a tune for them, but I also know how frustrating it can be to try to do either one sometimes. So, perhaps that is why I felt compelled to try to help those of you who wanted to turn one of your poems into a song.

But, alas, If you did or did not, you failed to let me know of your success or failure. If I do not know your weak points, how am I to know which direction my articles should take? So, until such a time as you feel that you can truly benefit from something I can share with you, I will discontinue these articles.

If I failed to touch on something YOU needed me to write about, perhaps I can still help you by discussing it with you over the phone or by email.

I will be happy to share what I know with you even without the articles. A simple email to: will get you an answer promptly, so please do not hesitate to contact me if I can help you in any way.

May you be truly blessed as you continue to write inspirational poems in HIS honor.
