UNCERTAIN IDENTITY

UNCERTAIN IDENTITY

 

A poet who doesn’t stay

Within a certain tense…

How can they find a way

To keep on making sense?

Too many interests dampen the soul

Overwhelming one’s nature…

When left uncontrolled,

But what happens over time???

    That’s what my book publishers told me….I wasn’t consistent in tense within a stanza. But in this context it can also mean confusing past, present and future—not having a good handle on any of them. And…call me sweetheart all you want, but only if you mean it!! 🙂
