Peculiar Poetry

Poetry with and without reason and rhyme.
Strange is what I strive for.
Expect lyrics and limericks, free verse and format.
Be prepared for bubbly and boiled, terrifying and horrifying.
Keep an eye out for those that provoke your thoughts, and some that bear no thought at all.
Many written for class, and others without much of it.
Feel free. There are no boundaries. Just think.
Consider, Ponder, Wonder, Imagine.
Argue, Oppose, Debate, Defend.
Perhaps you will be offended.
That's good.
Think about that.
Learn more of what you think.
How you think.
Take what you can from what you hate.
I don't seek to preach.
I only speak my mind.
A mind most peculiar.


32. "I Do Not Understand"

Joyous is life, no strife to be had 

What reason is there for one to be sad? 

Yet I am so grieved I can hardly stand 

What is happening to me? I do not understand. 

So silent, serene the scene may be 

But one must give thanks to be nothing like me 

For my mind erupts like a thousand-piece band 

It is far too distressing—I cannot understand.  

Nothing to do, at least no one sees 

It lingers, a stress I wish not to appease 

Smuggled inside like a contraband 

Such a stupid reality I have tried to understand. 

I want to get it, yet cannot find a reason

I swell up and heal as unsure as the season

Grief to my mind as the sea to the sand

I am a puzzle, and it seems I will never understand...
