Poetically Inclined Poem by Laquory Jones

Poetically Inclined

Rating: 5.0

What is life coming to I've fallen through the earth
With no parachute I've failed as I acknowledged the truth
As I'm dodging verbal missiles, projectiles and
Emotional abuse I live life as a recluse
Poetry has become my poetess and my muse
No need to cut her loose our bond seeping down to
The roots of emotional bondage I can sense some
Light upon us as I feel the heat (Super sauna)
Many times I've felt as if I'm drowning (in the aqua)
As I desperately fight off these dream-eaters (piranhas)
Because they're only here to (taunt us)
Freedom of speech means as a poet I can say (what I wanna)
So no harsh words shall prosper
Everything is sealed within my locker
Words are deeply interwoven
Crafted and carefully chosen for the shocker
As a kid I wasn't much of a talker
Because voicing opinions remained improper

At the age of nine I became poetically inclined
I kept my thoughts in my mind then
Began to revolutionize a new way of life
Hoping that I too could re-energize the nation
As it seeks for a resuscitation I'm bringing hope
And resurrections from its crippling devastation
It's my own book of Revelations through my
Art-form and dedication my new take on life
As I go through her stages while rewriting new
Chapters within her pages there were no other
Way for me to face this Destiny I have to chase it
Hurt and Pain will come no matter how I lace it
But it's my choice and my sacrifice
Call it Grains of Paradise so are you coming with me
No need for an admission price
