To Write A Poem

written by: John Patrick Robbins


Sometimes we must go deeper than the heart is willing to bare.
Beyond the emptiness of the pain.

And far beyond where the mind needs to go.

We lose our minds and never does the soul flee until the end.
Was it lost upon a battlefield?
Was it lost in the scars of our youth?

Was it always lost to begin with?

We never asked till it was too late to recapture that which could never be held to begin with.

Fuck people are a mess aren’t they?

Good thing we are normal.
A lie can be the glue that holds shit together and the ship hasn’t sunk yet.

I wasn’t always this deep.
I used to be normal in another life.
