Clear Words Poem by William Kofoed

Clear Words



I in troubled searching I read
For written words that speak to me
Most I find say not to me
Speak in ways I find strange
Unsure at what they are trying to say
Wonder do I if they are art
Following rules that I do not know
Do I need to count the time
Or search for most unclear rhyme
Oh how lost they leave me feeling
Where are words I can read
Word that speak clear to me
Simple lines with stories clear
When I would but despair
One is found I understand
Easy words and simple lines
Stories that truly speak to me
They are there to be found
Through much long searching
Feeling lost and without hope
Wonder I if I be wrong
If the words are changed and lost
If I seek what which is no more
Simple words in clear lines
Telling stories that I can feel
