For The Simple Minded

by bigbadwolf

I don't know who all can think
So, I will make this as simple as I can
Sitting here typing out my mind
Who said every poem has to rhyme

I don't get read and that will be alright
Maybe my poetry is over your head
So continue reading the childish pun
No smarter will you be when you are done

I will continue to write for myself
Even though I keep getting ignored
Nothing will last until the end of time
But what a waste to see so many simple minds

    Thank you, I don't believe that you are simple minded. Maybe I should have had this one on a blog page. Thanks for stopping by.

We all write for ourselves first and hope someone will read our poem, but in our everyday life very few people are interested in poetry. That's what's great about this site. Everyone likes poetry here and we are not ignored. I especially like the last line, as it connects with line 6. Keep writing and thank you for sharing.
