dealing with the poetry in me

i woke up real early this sunday morning 
why! i dont have to go to work
but by laying there i couldnt keep ignoring
the fact that my head really hurts
so i had to get up out of bed 
for this was something that i could not fight 
there is so much stuff going on in my head 
that drives me to the need to just write
this has gone on since childhood 
which always lead me to believe that i was curse
even the things that i never under stood 
i was forced to wirte down verse by verse
so is this what i've been looking for
is this truly why i was born
after all my life searching for so much  more
am i destine to be writing poems
trust  me i've tryed almost everything else
and none of that ever brought me any fame
so i wonder if just by expressing myself 
will people even remember my name
but it really does'nt matter about all of that
because now i finally see
that ive been overlooking the simple fact 
that poetery lives in me
