THIS IS MY 1ST TRY AT WRITING a poem
|Lying on the comfy couch,
> pen & paper in hand
>maybe i`m nervous or,
> something`s wrong with my sweat gland!!
> Thinking what to write about
> for the HT magazine,
> maybe about the festival of lights,
> or maybe about the Halloween!
> Maybe about TIME,
> the future or the past,
>muttering to myself,
> "WHATEVER YOU WRITE ,MAKE IT FAST!!"
> Quickly, I get hold of the pen
> and put the notebook in my lap
> scribbling something & then cutting it,
> THEY WON`T PRINT SUCH SCRAP!!
> "why not just copy
> from a book of someone else?!?!"
> just then my soul shouts,
> "DON`T YOU HAVE YOUR OWN BRAIN CELLS??"
> I reply,"It`s not about brain cells , darling
> it`s about creativity!
> i can`t write a good poem
> just `cause i`m a little witty!!"
> Maybe i should write about
> the conflicts of my heart or
> maybe about the sheer simplicity
> of a slow and steady bullock cart!
> "STUPID IDEA!!!!",
> roared my conscious,
> "You`re writing for the college magazine,
> so be cautious!!"
> On a more serious note
> I start thinking again,
> trying to use, what my friends call,
> my "non-existent brain"
> Glancing at the notebook
> I suddenly realize
> i ask the people around
> "Isn`t this a verse , guys?!?"
> "Whatever i have scribbled
> looks like a verse
> Verse or no no verse ,
> THANK GOD! it could have been worse!"
