I say "check out my poetry"
"Tell me what you think?
They wave me away, uninterested
I ask, "help me with words, ideas to add"
They nod off, into a short nap
I continue to write, with all of my might
Hoping to gain more insight, on why these words won't stop flowing
Giving me life, they keep growing
Like the buds from fresh dirt
I will continue to push thru, all of my pain and hurt
My eyes see the words, but my heart knows their beat
Humming like a bird, looking for that sweet nectar to eat
I gather my thoughts, write them down
I say the words in my head and pronounce them out loud
Dictionary is my friend, helps with understanding
Guidance from my mother, of ways to use my poetry as a branding
Introducing a new business, one not thought out very clearly
I fell into poetry by accident, now it's using me sincerely
All of my hopes and dreams are now of ink
They don't wash away, not matter how hard I blink
My mind races, to catch up to the journey
Ink over matter, the facts makes ink worthy
The words have won, and I am their pawn
Forward I write, my ink lives on
