A Poem a Day

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

I’m here,

writing a poem a day,

trying to keep the blues away.
