I’m not always going to put out my best, nor will I be at my best. Any creative know s that definitely applies to the work they put out: some will be great others will be awful and others will be mediocre. The following original poem of mine is a result of me producing less than my best. I wholly admit that. Enjoy.
SOME TRITE, THROWAWAY POEM
I feel great and “garbagey” and happy and sad and joyful and hopeless and godly and wretched.
I have a whirlpool of emotions within me.
Which one should I feel?
I don’t know.
But I won’t choose one or even two at a time over others.
I feel all of them.
And I will feel all of them.
And I will act accordingly to all of them.
Because they are my feelings.
And I clutch them to my chest, in my heart.
