I Still Prefer Crayons ~ #Poetics @dVersePoets
Give me a pack of crayola's
I think it might be easier
if I color outside the lines for a bit
lead you down the path I've been following
with melted wax breadcrumbs
glowing every color ever conceived.
More than once I tried to play nice
Changed the clothes
resisted the urge to pierce my nose
Another check mark on the long list of achievements
everyone else chooses to look at as "failures"
if who you really are
doesn't quite fit?
Do I squish around the corners
contort my being
and agree to obey
the walls of this dull gray box?
I can't do that!
This is my truth
because I tried!
forty is just over the horizon
and I still prefer the conversation of children
to most adults
and I prefer crayons over charcoal
I wanna be a rock star.
@StuMcP takes the stage and opens the pub for Poetics today at 3pmEst...see you at dVersePoets!
And once again this year...I've been tossed into the Shorty game...last year was a trip, a HUGE learning experience, and incredibly telling...no matter...If I've been nominated...I'm going to play with all I've got...so...in an effort ONCE AGAIN, to see #Poet recognized as an official category...toss me a vote HERE if you're so inclined. And many thanks to those who have already started waving my flag...PoetLove!
