A Bad Habit

A Bad Habit

I know how bad it can be

To have big expectations.

Too often the reality

Brings sadness and irritation.

  1. Short and to the point! Love it!

  2. Thank you, Sofia! I attempt to convey messages in as few words as is necessary. Some of the most profound and powerful thoughts I’ve ever heard, read, or experienced were remarkably concise. I attempt, and often fail, to achieve elegant simplicity. Even if I miss on the elegance part, I believe I accomplish something worthwhile by keeping my poetry assessable. That statement is not meant to diminish in any way the poetry of others that I greatly admire and enjoy which is often much longer and that I have to stretch to comprehend. I believe many types of poetry add to the depth, color, richness, and variety of the tapestry we’re creating together.

  3. All of your poems have that je ne sais quoi that makes your poetic diction stand out. Every poet has his own style and aesthetic and this shines through their poems. Poetry as you very well said is a tapestry and each poetic voice is unique! Stay blessed my friend!
