This will always be my definition. Because what I want to be cannot be labeled under your conditions.
I want to be more than a career,
A job will soon be what seems to define me,
But I am more than what this show appears.
I will never be one group or label,
Search no more for the place i belong,
Because the cards I have hidden are not all on the table.
I will always have an inner fire that wants more than this,
I cannot settle for something that has been done before,
Opportunity to open minds ends with the sweetest kiss,
If you do not understand this there is the door..
But if you do, welcome to, the new clique, the ones that draw outside the lines–
The undefined.

We need your help

Unlike many other websites, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep access to poetry as open as we can. Growing and maintaining Poeticous takes a lot of time, money and hard work, and the revenue we get from advertising is almost nothing, so we increasingly need our readers to fund us. If everyone who reads our pages, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. Support Poetiocus from as little as $1.
