Poem #1686

Why Both

Why does just writing poetry not content me?
Why won’t these story ideas leave me be?
Creative juices always seem to flow and churn,
Yet for more than poetry I somehow yearn,
Poetry is how I express my feelings and thoughts,
Why too must I explore worlds and plots?
To one or the other, I can’t commit,
Nor do I like how my writing time is split,
Overcoming strife is a pathway to growth,
But why must mine be writing both?
It’s not a matter of me trying to be lazy,
But doing both drives me absolutely crazy!
Writing both poetry and stories is a two-edged knife,
And yet apparently, I need both in my life,
