Why Stop Now


I wanted to trash all my work & quit,
walking through every dark halls,
looking at all my paper work,
empire state building stack,
this has been a long ride,
life ha whatever you call it,
ain't poetry like poetry king,
laying next to the windows,
sweating hot in summer,
hiding because they google me,
I love my famous poetry face,
woman be home in the morning,
like its 5'Oclock & she working,
oh no why stop now,
best is in you as it is in me,
nightmares at trying to be the best,
haunting me like its halloween,
girlfriend calling me on a broke phone,
government issued & they still owe me,
big world no railroads must turn right.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
