I write poetry because I can finish it,

I can't finish anything else.

I tend to over think the issues and not just get them out.

I can start writing a story but then I start writing two more.

They only have beginnings with no hope for endings anymore.

They seem to take forever and I have been writing them my whole life.

Poetry just seems so simple;

It's the easiness that makes it right.

There are only a couple of lines and I can finish them then,

It isn't a whole story with twists and plots and ends.

I have so many ideas; I just can't seem to get them out.

I guess I am looking for the easy way,

Which seems to be what poetry is all about.
