Poetry

I’m long-winded

My friends know

That much is true

How I express myself

In conversation

I can’t make soundbites

For you

I’m often interrupted

My thoughts are disjointed

When I write these things down

I’m often disappointed

I need to be

Expressive

But I want to do so

Succinctly

The only way

To accomplish this

Is to express myself

Through my poetry

I’m not

The greatest

But I do okay

At least

In this format

I can have

My say

I won’t be remembered

Like Langston

Or Maya

But maybe

Some day

My words will set

Your mind on fire

I write for

Myself

Not notoriety

I just like

To express myself

Using

Poetry
