Regular Mind Of A Man - Poem by Dessie McCoy

Writing in my book of rhymes that's concealed in my mind. The pain the anger, frustration all the time. The pain stops me from looking back into the future and forward in the past. I'm confused everything is backwards to me. Running from my fears a yo I gotta flee. The anger is the one that builds up inside of me. Just ready to burst on through my dome is the way to blind me. This thing is over powering me the rage is all inside me.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

    if this portrays a regular mind of a man, i'm glad my mind is irregular! actually i like it quite a bit and will be glad to read more if you submit more. but you better alert me, as i may not come back to you otherwise. what does the following mean i wonder: a yo I gotta flee. is there a typo? ?
    looking back into the future and forward in the past. .....a good demonstration of things being backward to you. thanks for sharing. and....maybe we are related, as my mother's maiden name is/was McCoy....from new york via iowa via?
