A poem a day
to keep the blues away,
not doctor prescribed,
just my way to hide
behind my pen
while sitting in what I imagine to be my den.
But in actuality is my desk,
at work, you know my job?
that has nothing to do with my college degree
truly this job does not reflect my pedigree.
Instead I think of it as a test
and do my best to prepare for whats in store
and try to ease the want for more
but until I get my five or six figure career
writing a poem a day,
trying to keep the blues away.
