Of Poetry and Peace

It’s been a long time

Since I’ve written any poetry,

Which is a shame,

‘Cos it’s really good for me.

It helps me clarify

And articulate

All the thoughts

That I’ve had of late.

Otherwise they

Hang around

And generate noise,

Not a beautiful sound.

They echo

And reverberate

Inside my head

And make me faint.

Far better then

That they’re released

On paper

Or the Internet

That I may regain

My peace.
