Don't Forget Where You Come

Don't Forget Where You Come

A Poem by ROXANE DORSEY

A taste of fame
could bring on shame
once one forgets their real name
thousands screaming
what a meaning
egos bursting seams 
inventing someone mean
sucking up dollar green
families braking up rumors
many smelling their bloomers
forgetting grounds walked on
coming up with the same name
before fame changed their game
it could only last til that crazy paper
bill burn up at will.

I like the way this is written like a rap song (or whatever such music is called these days!) Your rhymes are loose & unstructured & well-crafted. This is a time-worn message stated in completely fresh terms. I like the way you have a unique way of saying things without using the tired old phrases. (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

love poetry since it has been embedded in my mind deeply way back when I was 4 years old. A very good reader in pre-school. Nursery rhymes tuned me in even deeper. more..
