My attempt at an Anapeat

Standard

Can’t think of anything profound to say

Something that will make people sit up and say

“Wow, did you hear that?”

But I checked some books and some old magazines

But nothing jumps out at me

 

So I have a little problem because I

Can’t think of anything profound to say

But maybe it’s not the fault of my books

Maybe I’ve lost my touch,

The ability to recognize a good line when I see one

 

The scrutiny I used to have to be able to hear

A statement and get that “Aha” feeling

But I can’t think of anything profound to say

So I continue to search my books and the web

For maybe a quote by someone from the past

 

Someone who said something

That was repeated for its ring of the truth

Like the sound you hear when a sword is drawn, but

I can’t think of anything profound to say

So I’ll leave it to somebody else

 

I’ll go back to my lesson planning and such

And give life to the minds of my charges

Mold young minds to the basics they’ll need to survive

And forget about the fact that I

Can’t think of anything profound to say.

I'm a Jamerican; American born of 2 Jamaican parents. I am a voracious reader, a writer, a wife and a mother of 5 (1 girl). My favorite genre is science fiction but I will read anything. my favorite author right now is Lee Child (this changes often) I listen to all kinds of music but my favorites are jazz, Latin-jazz and classical. I write whatever comes to me and I've learned to start whether I have something or not.
