I wrote a poem once

 

I wrote a poem once

They told me it would be easy

That it was in my blood

That it would come naturally to me

I wrote a poem once

And I compared it to theirs

Their poems full of words and meaning

My poem wasn’t the same anymore

I wrote a poem once

And though they told me otherwise

My poem did not compare to theirs

My poem was small

And I though they were wrong

I wrote a poem once

And that poem was locked away

Away so people couldn’t tell me it was good out of pity

I wrote a poem once
