Did you know that it’s National Poetry Month?
Well, I didn’t either, until a few hours ago. There’s also a National Poetry Writing Month challenge, 1 poem per day all April, so I figure I might as well do that. I’ve done poem-a-day for more than a month before, I can do a month now.
Like I said earlier, I just found out about this, so I’ve had limited time to put a poem together. For short poetry-writing sessions, I work well with a set of boundaries, so I decided on an acrostic for today. Enjoy!

Can I make things more clear,
Or let it show here?
No. Absolutely not.
Finding words for my fix,
Using meanings which mix:
Sometimes, they’re all I’ve got.
Often find mine,
Never knowing what they’ve wrought.”
“We often confuse what we wish for with what is.”
“Much unhappiness has come into the world because of bewilderment and things left unsaid.”
“It’s funny. All you have to do is say something nobody understands and they’ll do practically anything you want them to.”
