For The Sake of Poetry

Written by: Virginia Kamau

That feeling you get,
When it rains & you 
wet,
that feeling you feel,
when you want to write
but you want to give up
cuz nothing  at all
is good enough not at 
all
to be put on that sheet 
of paper.

That feeling you get,
when no word in your 
poem,
Brings about a 
beautiful rhyme,
staying up late,
like you got late
for a date,
and its too late,
to go back and not be 
late,
so you stay up late,
like trying to fix a 
broken past,
it's impossible like you cant 
count dust
its impossible it's past
its gone it is past.

staying up late
for the sake of paper 
and pen,
for the sake of poetry,
just to write and feel it,
that sense of 
accomplishment,
that you are a poet too,
Like those great poets 
you read of.

Staying up late,
for the sake of Poetry.
