Read All About Me

Back in the day
I never knew what to say

On perpetual mute was I

Which peeps misread as shy
but twas really just abject fear
of living inappropriately

This of course happens
when lacking self confidence
in the field of public expression

Then I stumbled into social media

Twitter specifically

Where I found my voice
posting micropoetry

Hashtag venting in the public domain

Emptying my soul anonymously

The release felt so good

I found a creative addiction

Now I ramble on daily

Free from the demons of uncertainity

with text friends I shall never meet

who unlike my flesh and blood pals 

give a damn what I have to say


  1. I've read this poem several times and loved it every time.
    I love your micropoetry - something I have yet to try myself.

    Never seen the words 'social media' in a poem before, but there's a first time for everything

    Keep on writing

    1. As always thanks for the feedback..I think the restraints the 140 character or less rules of Twitter have improved my writing by forcing me to be more concise and economical with words as I do tend to ramble when I write ;)
