Nothing Special (Just A Poem)

Updated on December 8, 2011

Like a Shakespearean sonnet it’s tragically written, but it’s no tragedy

Nor novel, journal entry, or even biography

It’s not an adventure, no action, no horror, no drama

It’s not very entertaining, like a speech from Obama

It has no family or friends, it’s all alone.

It’s nothing special, just a poem…

It’s not up, it’s not down, no smile nor frown

It won’t make a man famous or a king lose his crown

It can’t make a nomad settle forever or a hermit leave his home

It’s nothing special, just a poem…

It’s hideous not beautiful like a flower

It’s boring like staring at a wide white wall for an hour

It doesn’t smell delicious like an apple pie

It’s not even funny enough to make you cry

It’s not new, but old, chiseled out in stone

It’s nothing special, just a poem…

It’s not chaotic like Ragnarok, or calm like the sunrise

It’s not angry, happy, or sad, there’ll be no tears in your eyes

It has no meaning, the author will never be known

After all it’s nothing special, just a poem…
