366 Poems: February 8th, 2016

Every Poet a Shakespeare

I came here to write a force of feelings

only to realize it had already been put down

in the lyrics of

a favorite song,

and I couldn’t confront them

for stealing my lines

in a world where we’re all just copies

of the former:

Every poet a Shakespeare,

every love a Romeo and Juliet,

every life a tragedy,

a comedy,

an epic…

You do not have to write something new.

All you need to do

is write

you.
