I wrote this many years ago as a late teen when paper was all I had. It’s still true today as I type words on a computer screen. With so many excellent poets out there, its rather intimidating to share what I wrote, but this is simple expression and written as I want it to be read.
Words on paper
Struggling to be read correctly
Fighting to expose the fullness
Of their meaning.
By a heart that knows their cause
But cannot see their effect
Struggling to convey
All the meaning
between each line.
