Diversion

Diversion  

It's called life.
A plan is made
to live unafraid.

It's called life
A call, a need,
something to read.

It's called life
Bills to pay
Sometimes I play

It's called life.
A meal, a meet
someone to greet

It's called life
The noise, the mess,
Always a guess

It's called life
I work, I write
maybe tonight
         ~Judi Van Gorder

Written in response to a prompt to write about what keeps you from writing.

I'm glad Badge,  your poetry is always just that, poetry.  I would love to think I too write poetry but the reality is that much of what I write are "jingles" or just poems to meet some criteria.  This falls into the jingle category in my opinion and I too smiled when I wrote it.  Jingles have their own redeeming quality.

Even a jingle is still a poem and effective as such. This one made me feel ... a bit of disdain, that is; it reminded me how I have a problem with that reality known as life. I don't like to be reminded. Effective.
