i wish i could

i wish i could

write poetry

that i won't be ashamed of in the future

and that i can breathe, exist, and live in short words.

i wish i could

appreciate the life that God laid out for me.


and breathe, exist, and live in trees.

maybe i'll find what i'm looking for.

i wish i could

get lost and tumble into a mess of creation,


straight from one's tangled imagination

but at the top of the list is

(crap, i rhymed again.

can i not let go of my childhood?)

why can't i find the model answer,

my moral of life?

and i look up and see

i've written the poetry i desired to write.

and all of my previous words have become

i r r e l e v a n t .
