In writing this poem I'm feeling depleted,
Hoping and praying it won't get deleted.
It doesn't concern sex or passion or hate,
Just making words rhyme as I try to relate.

It has little meaning, just a word here and there,
No thoughts or real meaning that I'm trying to share,
Just some "BS" and words that may rhyme,
Just kinda writin' and wasting my my time.

I guess I could say I'm doing "something?"
But in reality, I'm writin' 'bout nothing.
But my paragraphs show it's written in verse,
If I put my mind to it, it'd probably be worse.

So if you're reading this poem, act like you're doing something,
And if somebody asks what you're reading,
Just say, "Oh, it's just nothing."
