Off the top off my head -Literally

This poem came right of the top of my head. So I apologize if none of my words make sense. Ya see I think most of the people my age are going through a really rough time. There's a so called big world out there, and its our identity that we have to find. Constantly we are molding by good, bad outside forces. So today I am country chic, tomorrow I might be a geek. Or better yet, a Jersey Shore drama queen. But whatever it is, who ever I am, we are at some inward point we want to be wanted. Sadly wasting our good young years for a hopeless cause. Only to get older more mature and wish we could go back. Knowing what we know now, to make things right. To not waste life. But I guess that's the learning process. I say all of that to say this. It all came of the top of my head. In literally 2 minutes. And that's it.

    Cute poem - isn't it nice when they just come to you like that? when you don't have to bleed them out? I really like the line about who you might be one day to the next - jersey shore drama queen cracked me up!

    Thanks for sharing. I like stream of consciousness poetry. Making sense is relative. Keep writing!
