This poem is a poem
This poem speaks of me; it speaks of you
It speaks of our hopes and our dreams
It speaks of days and nights

Continent not country
Large, diverse, populous
This poem can be great; will be great

Trouble Knocking

Hello people.
This 30 days of Writing isn’t going according to plan.

Tell me what you think about it in the comments. Thanks.

Wondering about life woes
In the end, everyone goes
What to do when you’re alone
What to say when the words are gone
