2023 NaPoWriMo #12 (Meta Poetry)

April is here again and that means its National Poetry Writing Month and for my second year I’ll be joining the 30 poems in 30 days challenge hosted by napowrimo.net. For this challenge, a poetry prompt will be provided daily during the month of April and if I can keep on track I’ll achieve the 30 poems in 30 days goal. So enough chatter…let’s go! It’s time for NaPoWriMo!

Write a poem that addresses itself or some aspect of it’s self (i.e., “Dear Poem” or “What are my quatrains up to?”)


It’s Me, Your Poetry

Hey, Poet! Yeah, you!
Get out of your own head;
Stop with all the melodrama;
It’s me time, now,
Time to let me fly free.

Who’s that? Are you speaking to me?

It’s me, your poetry.
I’m tired of your sentimental notions,
Your self-indulgent tirades,
And forced silly masquerades;
Give me my voice! Let me free!

Okay, okay! What do you have to say?

Really? My words can have there day?
Well then, let me think;
Let me think of what words to say;
Something important;
I’m sure I have something important to say.

Go ahead. I’m waiting. No time for vacillating.

Um. Perhaps not today?
You can go back to your drama and rhymes;
My words are too important to be rushed;
Yes, thats it, much too important I’d say!
Let’s do this another day.

Be well,
