Not Of This World Poem by Richard Wlodarski

Not Of This World

Rating: 5.0

I do think
I am not
Of this world
I cannot
Damn conform
To screwy restrictions
I try try try
And die die die
What the hell
Why not die?
'cause I now live
Wanna so live
Yet, death's not far

Receiving such a very positive appraisal of this poem from one of the highest esteemed poets is indeed a great honour. And especially so much more meaningful because the poem is part of my first book in The Kerouac Project. So many THX, Geeta!

Sometimes it is very difficult to face the ugly situations and you feel low and depressed. Such thoughts come into mind. Nice expression of frustration. Loved the ink.

3) That project consists of a series of books in which the deceased Kerouac is speaking through me. Imaginary or otherwise. It's taking a huge toll! But well worth it! Sincerest thx for your concern!
