Stop Writing and Singing


I need to stop
writing and singing.
I need to get a life.

Since we are now
forbidden to do
such foolish things,
I must find interest
in something else.

I am trying so hard
to forget of my past
and the wonderful
memories I made.

I let my brain
rot in front
of a box
of misdemeanor.

But even that
leads me
to write a song
of how I am
wasting my time
by living this life
of innocence.

All that time
spent thinking
of what to do next
wasted once again.

Now I must go
if I don't want to
be in any more trouble
than I have
already gotten
myself into.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this when I had work and chores that needed to be done. Poetry had taken over my life. I forced myself to not write poems for one day to get things done but unfortunately that could not be done. And so here is the poem of my failure of trying to take my mind off poetry.

Amongst the flowers I
