A Return to Poetry


Is this a return to poetry?
The return that I’ve been longing for to be set free
Free from the thoughts that have forever plagued me
Will I ever stop using words that end with e?
Perhaps? But go easy on me though
As you know I am no Van Gough
For I am merely a student, always looking for a teacher
Who will take action instead of being a preacher
Is this the year that I finally decide to take action?
Maybe, just maybe once I finally get the traction
Which will never come because of my past inaction
But the time is now regardless of my future level of satisfaction.
