I tend to keep things. Because of this, I have a couple of flash-drives containing old poems, stories, pictures, etc. to make room on my computer. It's a win-win, because I'm de-cluttering, yet I get to keep my documents. As I was looking through one of my flash-drives today, I found this poem below. It was written about 2-3 years ago.
Isn’t it amazing how
beautiful words sound together?
Alone, they are nouns, pronouns, etc.
but together, now there’s something
Words can inspire.
They create a burn in
of your stomach.
They cause you
Or at least have the longing to.
Why don’t we go off of feelings?
That’s something us as a people
have tried to overcome.
“Don’t be led by feelings.
Follow facts and stats, those set in
That’s all you can trust
now isn’t it?
