Poetry in my family genes

2017 poems

Poetry is my gene

It's not rude or mean

Poetry is what

Completes the story

Of my life

It keeps me going,

And I don't even

Have to take my

Anger out by just

Using some crazy 

Outrageous weapon

Or knife

Poetry is my gene

It gives me quiet

A bit of peace

Because now I'm

A follower of the

True maker himself

Poetry keeps me

Out of the dark

That's what had

Changed my whole

And complete heart
