These Are My Poems!
by Andres Diaz ©2021

A warning about my poems
They’re not stuffy tomes
They can be hotter than a blast furnace
More sublime than a soft summer breeze
They can be aggressive as a shark in a feeding frenzy
As comfortable as a warm blanket
I’m not writing these poems for others
I’m writing them for me
Because I will not let cool ideas be bottled up
I have a lot of shit to get off my chest
Because the whirring turbines in my brain
Are whipping out such cool shit that you gotta hear it
That’s why I write my poems
I don’t care about meters, stanzas or such
I know there are people that will never approve
How sad their existence must be
If they depend on others clamoring for their acceptance
You should only need to accept yourself
Everyone else can go in the trash if they don’t like it.
