'Read The Past, Write The Future' - Poem by Alicia Meyers

It's so hard to figure this out,
Staring at a blank page is like living with doubt,
Deleting the sentance over and over,
I can't seem to make a poem famous as ever.

A poem isn't just about words you say,
It has feelings and adventurous ways;
A poem is like a baby,
Fragile and delicate it may as well be.

But whatever you put out on paper,
Will stay there forever:
You see - deleting and or erasing words from a simple page,
Is like life - how you can't delet or erase memories as it just moves on and stays the same.

Trying to make up a poem is very hard and not easy,
It may come to mind quickly;
But it get's harder and harder every day,
As if it were homework anyways.

A poem is made up from the heart,
To the soul and not teared apart,
So that poems are fragile as a flower,
Because poems leave a life full of power.

Succeed as you may,
But a poem may say,
That life is full of adventures,
Read the past and write the future.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The last sentance as well as the title; is a quote written by me. No one should keep trying to live in the past, nor trying to keep writing it - just read the past and write the future. It's just another page away, another chapter to say. <3
