Am looking for answers
Responses to philosophicals
As to whether my part time profession is really worth it
The hustle and constant juggles with alphabeticals
The life of a poet
Since childhood the language has been my trade
My art, my hobby, my talent
My source of joy and fulfillment
But not anymore… not anymore
Distaste has finally crept in
Reality of my life glaring back
My sweet words no longer soothing my own ears
Leaving me empty… desolate
He who pays the piper calls the tune
What about the piper?
Does anyone care whether or not they existed?
Or is there a time the product worth more than the producer?
That’s my sorry state summed up
My words make pick up lines
Repair broken relationships thought to be irreparable…
And cement wobbly and stable unions in equal measure
However, not my own heart
Not my own desire
Am left to be as great as the words I speak
When I stop the talk then none stays
Back to square one!
I crave for love…
To love and be loved
To appreciate and be appreciated
To feel the emotional embrace for who I am
And never for what I do
I wanna die satisfied
Being more than a souvenir
Worth more than mere marvels and excitement from satisfied clients
I want to own and be owned
Even at the final hour
To exit guaranteed to be missed
And not to die Lonely
For making lasting memories!
Ookoscope, the way it is!
