Day 322 – Young Poetry

So honest, so direct,
so ambitiously penned,
so irrevocably bad.

I’ll find an old scrap of paper,
feel the wash of expired passion,
cringe at what I was trying to say,
and die a little inside.

There’s a place for all my young poetry,
there’s a basket I’ve labeled just so
for the words I fought for the right to express
that should’ve passed out of mind.

Yet sometimes I think of my numbered years
and whether they will bring enough growth
to keep me grimacing, enough to keep
me marching humbly on.

    Simple yet carries so much weight. I’ve felt so many times I picked my phone to type a piece for my blog. So much honesty I want to let out but somethings just can’t go public.

    I also want to say you’ve been doing an awesome work with you #365poetryproject. Get everyone of your posts on my email and share as much as I can with my poet roomie and others. Keep it up
