I’ve never been into poetry. Like, at all.
But the one section of poetry I do remember enjoying throughout my journey of adolescence was haiku. Probably because I perceived them as being simple, easy work.
But recently I’ve been writing some, or composing them in my head. They’re something completely different from poetry. Feelings and ideas can be more clearly expressed through more straight-forward prose than traditional poetry, for me at least..
But haiku, on the other hand, allows for the communication of feelings and ideas that would otherwise have laid dormant as intangible cogitation.
So, why am I explaining all of this? Basically just because I never expected that I would end up writing haiku on this blog when I started it. I just wanted to make note of that. However, I feel it fits in with the overall theme I have going on; haiku will just work to provide my awesome readers with further insight into what goes on in the heads of young people such as myself, which was one of my intended purposes of EWWTY in the first place.
So, without further bullshit, here’s my favorite haiku I’ve written so far.
Mind is a prison
From which escape is fruitless;
You must melt the want.
I mean I think it’s pretty awesome, but I love everything I make. I’m just narcissistic like that.
