Ask Me To Write A Poem

Ask me to write a poem
about the ball shaped bone in my middle finger.
Ask me to write a poem
about the heavy pen with the dark ink
that has helped me form the words
to free the stories in my mind.
Ask me to write a poem
about the holes in the walls of my bedroom,
about the broken window with the birds nest,
or about my vandalized dresser that hardly opens from years of abuse.
Ask me to write a poem
about the scars on my face,
from falling and being "Harry Potter"
to the hole Scooby put in my lip.
Ask me to write a poem about
Fozzy, Pikachu, Yoshi, Snickers, Spike, Jingle Bombs, Greg, Sunshine and Snowflake.
Those who were more than just pets
and will forever be apart of me.
Ask me to write a poem
about the cousins I don't remember,
about how the fire hid the ugly truth
and crushed my family.
Ask me to write a poem
about all that has beaten me down
and all that has helped bring me back to my feet.
Ask me to write a poem.
