The Poems I Have Not Written —

By johnlmalone

I am outside late at night

Writing poems

About the poems I have not written

The ones I’ve shied away from

Because of embarrassment

Or timidity

Or fear of shedding my jovial persona

The Poems I Have Not Written —

Have you ever wondered about your words?

I too, have stories that lay in the dust, not written for what reason I don’t know. Perhaps I worry about criticism, or failure, when I should be sharing what I am thinking with others.

Sharknado is a series of American disaster horror comedy science-fiction films released by Syfy starting in 2013. The sixth film concluded the series in 2018. It has since been expanded into video games and comics, including a spin-off film, Sharknado: Heart of Sharkness, that was released in 2015.


Christian father, grandfather, teacher, author. Everyday we live our lives by faith. The question is this; Who or what is the object of our faith? I chose to put my faith in Jesus Christ on September 10, 2000. Since then my life has not been the same. There have been mountain top days as well as days spent in the valleys of life, but each of those days my Lord has carried me through. I am assured that God is for me. Psalm 56:9 When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me. So, whatever you are facing today, you can have this confidence in the LORD. He is for you.
