No Clever Lines

By C.L.Sky, Hamilton, Canada

I’ve always wanted to write a poem
One that people would admire and talk about
Something that would grasp someone’s attention
And I thought that if I read poems
Something would come to me
But I realized that it would have to be something very special
Because so many ideas have already been taken
So many words have already been used
They’ve already been used in all the right ways
In the right order, and in the right circumstances
Feelings have already been let out
And hearts have already been broken and healed
Friends have already been made and lost
Siblings have been born,
And grandparents have passed
Words have been used that I have to stop and think about
