Throwback Thursday Poetry: Inspiration

Inspiration
inspiration is all i need
but to find this inspiration
i must look deep
within myself and my soul
to my deepest, darkest desires
and fantasies

what is this
inside of me
i feel different
it seems
never before
have i felt
so differently

feeling inspiration
overtaking me
but it’s not what i dream
you see
there is something
changing in me
i begin to feel
Naughty!

Throwback Thursday Poetry: Arrogant

without delay
we shall say
that we are stronger than you

we are omniscient
this is true
and we are more powerful than you

we’ve never met
we’re strangers too
but we are stronger than you

lost within
our own big heads
we are smarter than you

we battle here
we battle there
you win the fight everywhere

you beat us down
to the ground
but we are more powerful than you

Early poetry from James. From the poetry collection Pariah Bound: The Lonesome Poetry.

Throwback Thursday Poetry: Tests

the test is hard
the test is long
all the writing
is hurting my arm

i breeze through the parts
that don’t make sense
but when it comes to facts
i am a mess

these tests are unnecessary
they mean nothing to me
but i must take them
for all eternity

tested over everything
i will face someday
but never understanding
until i reach that day

people don’t like tests
they are intimidated, possibly
but when they are confronted
they don’t really complain

this poem doesn’t make sense
i’m not sure what i mean
i’m taking standardized testing
the boredom is captivating me
