It’s what makes you happy in life, and to pursue it, I think, is brave and a wonderful thing. I don’t care what people say. I just want to pursue what makes me happy. — Marvin Gaye

An Ode To Marvin And Stevie

2023, Henery X

I Heard It Through The Grapevine

That this Golden Lady

Was in need of Sexual Healing

But I was out to ensure she wouldn’t be No Part-Time Lover

So I called her and said, Come Live With Me Angel

And this left her Overjoyed

Then I said, Take This Heart Of Mine

My Cherie Amour

Mercy Mercy Me

You Are The Sunshine Of My Life

After the fact I was in my car moving through the Inner City Blues

With my thoughts focused on Higher Ground

When I arrived at her house and she opened the door I said, I’m Here Just To Keep You Satisfied

And after our kiss she said, Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours

And I said, That’s The Way Love Is

Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there. — Stevie Wonder

Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder are my number one and number two all-time favorite male singers, respectively. This offering is made up of 8 song titles by Marvin and 7 by Stevie.

Taking song titles from artists I love and creating poems or short stories is another writing exercise I created for myself that I love.

How do you push yourself to be a more creative writer? I’d love to read about it in the comment section. Hey, who knows. You may motivate me to step a bit further off into the realm of my imagination.

Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge my offering.

Remember. I’m not here to convince you to believe. I’m here to offer you something else to consider.

May we never lose our desire to outdo what we’ve already done.

Continue to be a lighthouse for all those who feel lost in the sea of life.

Peace, Love, and the utmost Respect.
