Kept To keep Simple



As a writer of poetic verse.
So hard do I attempt and try,
To keep kept my expressions...
Basic, direct and left simple.
Yet...
Difficult for me it is,
To focus upon a doing of this.
When my mind becomes curious,
As if out of my control.
Introducing a rambling prose.
I did not intend it meant.
So...
With that intention,
To keep this submission...
Basic, direct and poetically simple.
I've done the best I could.
But this thing I have about writing.
I did not seek it sought.
It sought me first.
And...
Gone to no longer get on my nerves.
Like sometimes it might,
To the readers who wish...
I get to the point and make it quick!
Poetically.

'Thank God.
I thought you would never end this epic!'
