This I believe

A Poem by MichelleSun

Written by me inspired by the wonderful site This I


This I believe

I believe people be doing too much

The activities of ourselves along with our youth and children are excessive

I believe people be talking too much

The muscle between our lips is used gregariously and haphazardly without abandon, with no regard for others or time and the space at which we have to breathe-

Life is short -SHUT UP! And and

and too many “ands” are used and an immoderate amount of vowels, verbs, adjective, so many adjectives like blah blah blah blah.

Don't say it. Put it in writing then sign it, then I will know you're for real.

This I believe.

And it ain't no crime to not talk right and be a English teacher, of course unless you're speaking in that manner around your pupils then marking up their essays for repeating cuz this and cuz that and spelling "college" like "collage" and not knowing the difference.

This I believe

Appositive-ly Alliterated Antonyms amount to too many words.

Explain myself?

Id rather not, but I must admit, I am kind of in the box but it's okay because I have a shadow outside the box

and in this shadow lives my soul. Maybe Its not really a shadow. Maybe Its a spirit. I don't know but- I do know It has more fun than I. It goes more places. Its says less and does more.

It makes no promises, plans, or excuses.

It just does what it feels

and it feels so much that it's never still.

It lives the life I can only dream to live.

This I believe.

I love this. I could go on in this manner forever, but fortunately for you, my vocabulary is limited so rather than ending it I will just let it be...and and and ….

This I

I love this! It's witty and reminiscent of some people I know. It reminds me to be accountable...can't teach it, if I'm not practicing it. It encourages me to continue to love words and stretch my imagination. I like...

Ms.un this is a brilliant piece of writing as well. I think this is new also? I like the word play in this poem as well. The slang bought a raw feel to your poem that was very refreshing to me. Another great write. I will be back for more.
