Writers write.  My friend Sam told me that.  I write a lot... but it's always in notebooks and I rarely go back and analyze.  Feedback is one of the most important criterion for growth.  So in honor of the theme of this here Po-em... I'm going to start writing more of my thoughts to this here internet public.  Sending shit out into the abyss...  

Also, the formatting for this blog is weird so I guess the only way to get it in single space was to have it as a quote.  I don't normally quote myself...

 

Chase Your Fears

I write to go on a journey
Twists and turns have no path
The page is laid out neatly
So I scribble this way and that

I play to make magic
Song from nothingness
To make a foot tap
From complete ignorance

I sing to hear your singing
Harmonize with me
Let go of what you’re missing
Your voice is all I need

I dance because I’m afraid of
What others will make of mine
That’s ok though
Fear’s my favorite sign

When I hear her calling
I surely must rejoice
The gift of her presence
A clear and easy choice
Her advice is always errant
but her error always pure
So I flip her on her head
To make her wisdom clear
Now the harder that I chase
The farther she seems to run
I cannot keep pace
Oh what have I done
I love you fear
So I’ll run faster for you
I’ll create new gears
You always make me do

I write to go on a journey
Twists and turns have no path
The page is laid out neatly
So I scribble this way and that
— Things I think I think...
