Can't Put the Pen Down…

Very Young

Oh, very young,
with a dictum for every deliberation,
a solution for every situation,
an opinion for every conversation.
Oh, very young, true wisdom has a doubt.

Oh, very young,
With a plan for every exigency
A protocol for every emergency
A path for every divergency.
Oh, very young, true growth is playful. 

Oh, very young,
So set in your phase,
I would stay a while but you were already
very young when I got here.

  1. Honestly, I’m not sure how the publishing thing is going to work out. I’ve researched a lot of self publishing options and I’m certainly not averse to putting some money where my poems are. As an independent recording artist ( I’ve self financed the production of two CDs which have paid for themselves and now earn me royalties. But it takes a lot of energy and discipline to self promote. The creation phase is the fun part, then you have to do the hard work (marketing). Although marketing can be fun too – just the attitude you bring to it I guess! Thanks for your comment; perhaps I should also post some blogs about what I find out about publishing as I go along. People may be interested in that. Thanks for the idea!
