words, thoughts, ideas 

crystallize from nowhere 

even as I struggle to fathom 

where it is headed to 

the urge to regurgitate is 

so compelling  that 

I have to but put it up

sometimes I struggle 

to understand the nervous 

energy that propels thoughts 

implores expression 

even risking comprehension 

yet, I write 

each time every time

from within to without 

or vice versa 

churning a medley 

of rehashed remixes

floating in and out of consciousnesses 




or just the same

time will tell 

all I know is catharsis.

  1. I hope you show this to your students. It is an important lesson. But even if you don’t share, I’m sure that your attitude and manner in class conveys that special lesson.
