Postpoetic Scene

My life
A series of randomly scattered events
My world
A constantly scrutinized existence
My hope
To leave it all behind
As I run away to find
Some semblance of my peace of mind

My heart’s
Been ripped at its seams
My soul’s
Been sweetly re-mending
My dream
Is on the edge of my reach
Distant but within means
And out there waiting for me

This time
I’m not wasting chances
This life
Is what I’ve been handed
My choice
Is choosing to risk what it takes
Reaching my end my own way
No regards to consequence or mistakes

My life’s
Not always what it seems
My words
Don’t always flow freely
But I still
Write all that I’m feeling
Scribe all I’m not speaking
To tell all the secrets I’m keeping

This place
A postpoet’s home
Our space
In places unknown
We meet
To gather and write
To share in our rhymes
And reach out to others of our kind

There’s no sense in sugarcoating anything
The truth right here can clearly be seen
You are all the most amazing
And incredible people inside this scene

Blessed and fortunate, am I, to be a part of it all
We rise and we stand and we share in the fall
We feed our inspiration when it comes to call
And there’s no better place for our poetic drawl

So welcome everyone, come and see
The brilliance in this postpoetic scene
