We’ve all been there. I’ve visited the land of horrible poetry probably more often than most. I spent all of high school camped out on its beaches. I have friends who have squatters rights. I have other friends who have moved on to Mediocreshortstoryville. A few in disjointedessaycity. But no matter where we are, we all know where we’ve been, where it began. Our genesis is the bad poetry that make up Creed lyrics and the writing behind the Fast and the Furious franchise. You all have it, maybe one poem, maybe hundreds. And I know what you are thinking. You are thinking, this one, its not so bad. In fact, maybe its really, secretly, quite good. The honest answer, the answer you deserve, is that it IS so bad. This is not to discourage you from writing it, because it takes a whole lot of bad writing to make good, the same way most everyone has to really screw up a few relationships before they learn enough about themselves and other people to recognize This Is Where I Really F*d up Last Time. So write that poem! Embarrass yourselves! Love the next one. Just never show anyone the rough drafts.
