I need a new home

-The poet in me


I've been writing on another poetry site

But now I need a new home

I went there seeking shelter

Somewhere where I didn't feel all alone.


And it was there where I met poets

Who were from all around the world

And my feathers grew within their view 

As this poet I have in me unfurled.


You can call it a plunge or a leap of faith

It's time to give this mean old world a try

-The poet in me wants to spread his wings

Now that I have the faith that he can fly.

  • L. B. Mek

    from Bukowski's, cornered:
    they sit talking about
    me: “yes, it’s happened, he’s
    finished… it’s

    “he never had a great deal, did

    “well, no, but now…”

    they are celebrating my demise
    in taverns I no longer

    I drink alone
    at this malfunctioning

    as the shadows assume
    I fight the slow

    my once-promise

    lighting more cigarettes
    pouring new

    it has been a beautiful

    (fight strong, dear poet
    enjoy the journey, do not be hasty
    let it all unfold, naturally
    as it was meant to be
    whatever your rewards
    however bountiful or desperate
    invest in a mindset, acknowledging
    you gave it your best!
    may you find the wisdom to realise
    that's as good is it gets...)

    • -The poet in me

      L. B.

      On this journey that I am traveling
      I want to leave behind but few regrets
      So -The poet in me, and I agree
      That he's about as good as it gets.

      He don't walk around all spit and polished
      There ain't a thang in the world he's got to prove
      My poetry is the freedom that lives within him
      And I hope to share some of it with you.

      But his "good as it gets" hasn't got here yet
      And I know that it's only a matter of time
      He still leaves behind flaws in front of all yall
      Because it's something he never hopes to find.

      • L. B. Mek

        More power to your dream, dear poet kin
        Keep that mighty Pen, defiantly roaring
        till the end, may you too be blessed
        'with a most beautiful, fight!'

        You found a great family here on MPS!

        • -The poet in me

          I hope to learn your name one day
          But for now, it's "BlessedbyGod"
          I stand up straight and remove my cap
          And lean forward and give you a nod.

          I don't know how long I'll be here
          Just wanted to stop by and take a look
          Maybe I'll stick around a few more days
          Or maybe I'll write enough to fill a book.

            Like Jim Morrison said...

            Quoting... "All poetry has wolves."

            Like everything in this life...

            It can be used for good, right proper reasons.

            Or bad terrible reasons.

            Like... a Bible, or a Tool, a Hammer, A knife.

            Things have the use and intention you give them... as they always did.

            A rock... can crush a nut, or crush a skull.

            Lies... usually never good.

            But some minor lies, can be a lesser evil.

            Please do write a book.

            Write 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10...



            A million...

            Write a gazillion books.

            You can...

            Well... maybe so... can I.

              Thank you Peter Pan
              I hope in time you'll understand
              That I also have a Patriot inside of me.

              I'll do what is right
              With all of my might
              And hopefully in time you'll come to see.

              "The only thing necessary
              For the triumph of evil "
              Is for good men to never speak their mind.

              I look around these days
              And I am totally amazed
              So "The Rock" may get to read it all in rhyme.
