Quote Me Wrong - Poem by Matthew Holloway

Quote me wrong
some people live on quotes
and I am admittedly
am prone to the odd use myself
I try not to live on the words of others
but on those words of my own
I reference and admit inspiration
but never one to steal directly
I'm not a quote plagiarist
lines I have read and lines I've heard
other lines similar perhaps to some
I've spoken, written, thought
I don't know if I can be quoted
or quote another with ease
I don't live on quotes
and quotes do not live on
through me
