    alright ya'll I know I'm not th only one with this madness

    sometimes the words
    they bang around my head
    and fight each other to reach the end of my fingertips
    and flow from my pen first
    and then they burst forth
    and i know i've said
    something profound
    and yet i have no idea what it is

    and sometimes they bang around
    inside my mind
    stuggling to break free
    like a adolscent teens
    unwilling to waver
    brinking on disaster
    insisting they do nothing wrong
    while i ground them
    to separate corners
    waiting for the peace to come
    through the language of my pen

    thanks everybody, I'm glad I'm not alone in this

    if at some inopportune moment
    I find myself faced again with
    these thoughts that I gave life
    I look at them in confusion
    like a white mama seeing her black baby
    for the first time and telling
    her husband, 'darling I just don't know what happened'
    still I feel each one of them
    coursing through my veins
    giving me life even as I am
    drained, denied sleep, food, pleasure
    while I try to make reason out of rhyme
    and nature out of nonsense
    but every time I swear I've got it figured out
    another syllable explodes
    throwing me once again
    back into the madness
