My mom is a published poet, as is my cousin, Marty Silverthorne. As much as I love to write, I am not drawn to writing poetry. It takes a special gift.
Good thing today is Bad Poetry Day.
Which means it's time for poets like me to shine. Yeah, baby!
Ode to Social Media
When I feel like giving up
When the words won't come
There's a friendly bunch on Facebook
When I can't find inspiration
When I don't know which way to turn
There's a friendly bunch on Twitter
When a day is leaning toward the sad
When there's not a friend around
There's friendly comments on my blog
When time is crunched
When deadlines are looming
Pics of hot half-dressed guys light up Facebook
When I should be writing
When I should be reading
The coolest people have something to say on Twitter
On other days, whether good or bad
There's always someone willing to share
On all of Social Media
I can't walk away
Too many friends there now
But it's like chocolate
I need to learn my limits
Feel free to take up the bad poetry challenge and share a stanza in the comments. Really, isn't the point to try and use words to express our feelings?
Is there even such a thing as bad poetry if it's honest and real?
