A Poem of Many Poems

December 4, 2008
By Ben Mathers, Plymouth, MN

Now we all like a good poem
Usually one of nature or love
But sometimes those poems depress me
Make me think about what I do not have

I have written many poems
Of crashing waves
Beautiful woods
All poems
All heart-wrenching
All fiction

What brings a poem to life is truthfulness,
Values,
Dignity,
Hard work

This poem is not of nature
Not of love
Not of fiction
This poem is of life

Short, yet it already seems to be really intense; good work!
