The Truth about Me


Poetics Aside Prompt: Take the phrase “The Truth About (blank),” replace the blank with a new word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write the poem.

I’m not very complicated
Ordinary; yes, that’s me
But darling, fame is over-rated
I prefer simplicity

One would think simplicity
Is quite easy to maintain
But it takes purposed resolution
In this era bent on gain

God forbid that I will squander
In the driven lust for things
The purest offerings of His wonder
Set before us; fit for kings
