My Poetic Beginning

Irritating, Difficult
Is what I first thought
Before I got writing
I would rather have not

Even looked at a poem
What's there to see
With stanzas and rhyming
Before I saw it was me

I started off writing
Songs with a swing
Nothing thinking of songs
As poems you sing

Then one day I got bored
And was writing a song
The rhythm and words
Of the poem belonged

Not to the music
But to be spoken strong
Not with guitar, bass, or drums
That is how my poems begun.
