Your poem innocence has a rare accomplished quality. I thought that was worth posting here. Unlike some writers, I have actually taken a class in poetry, and I know it is sometimes hard. It may be hard even to find themes which are not too dark. And even when they are dark, sometimes that's what's worth fighting for...

The Best Poem Of Tim Labbe

Beat Yesterday


Beat yesterday.

That's all.

The comfort of
misery comes

It skids over cold
with the garbage

It hides in the
humming and buzzing

It hunches
over the
neighborhood bar,
clenching a bottle

It makes suicide
seem almost easy

But you must Beat it.

Beat yesterday.

That's all.

Pound it to the ground.
Crush in into oblivion,
‘til your knuckles are
raw and bloodied.

And if you're lucky
enough to awaken,
battered and bruised,
you must try again.
Never, ever quit.

It's too important not to.

The comfort of
misery comes easy.

Too easy for most.

Most are
too soft.
