My First Poem

I have, mostly in private, penned thousands of poems. I have written poetry seriously since I was 13. My very first poem, however, was written as an assignment when I was about 8. It’s entitled “Shoes” And it goes like this:

Shoes are what are on your feet.

Some are nerdy. Some are neat.

If I had none, I suppose

I would walk on tippy toes

To keep the rocks from underfoot

Cuz that would cause my feet to hurt.

So Summer, Winter, Spring or Fall

I guess I’ll wear shoes after all.
