A Poem

I have an idea

I have a new thought

I finally found

The one thing I sought

I’ve been inspired

To create something new

From something expired

That no one ever knew

Something without meaning

But is somehow applied

Maybe I've laughed

Maybe I’ve cried

Please try to understand it

It’s meant to be admired

All feelings beware

I’ve been inspired

It comes with a point

I hope it makes them feel

Even if it’s unclear

I hope it will appeal

I’ve spoken a million words

Without the use of my tongue

What if they don’t take it seriously?

Because I am so young
