My poetry
(if it can even be called that)
Is like my life
to restrained
Limited
Controlled
To busy attempting to follow
other peoples rules

Trying to find meter
A rhythm
even dabbling in rhyme

Never writing just what I feel
Always thinking
within the lines

A good poem can awaken…
Bring courage
when there is none there

Better then any drugs
Or alcohol consumed

A good poem does not fear death
nor life
It transcends it

A good poem isn’t concern
with rejection or praise
It has no boundaries
and no sense of shame

A good poem is better
then what can be seen
It’s better then life
Much better then me

A good poem matters
and should never feel restrained

I only wish,
I could write one
someday

great point we should never liit our thoughts to any limits set by control, we are all free to sail along at our pace going places our minds take us...so soar to the highest hights and let nothing hold you back.

To be honest with ourselves even if we don't say our truths aloud, is the making of us as individuals...be proud of who and what you are..:-))
