I've been twenty now

and I was fifteen then

when I considered myself clever enough

to write poetry


But now I'm an artist

and I know the difference between your and you're

but I'm a bit nervous

to write poetry

So I'll push my major

to the back of my mind

and think a little about how

to write poetry


I'll replace my paintbrushes

with a keyboard

a little courage

and say hello again

I'm back today

for now

To Write Poetry.
