I Ain't Gonna

Vintage Words


ain't gonna write no more

whassapoint?  nobody listens

nobody changes, nobody's ego

is interested and mine has

better things to do than waste

time on anything that is not

totally and absolutely me. so,

i ain't gonna write no more!


i ain't gonna sing, smile, dance,

or be cheerful neither. wassapoint?

the sky will not be bluer or the day

greener. flowers will come grow

be picked die and be trashed.

so why sing about it?


i ain't gonna live, breathe, think

no more too. whassapoint? did

someone reinvent a wheel because

they read a poem or took

inspiration from prose in short

story format? naw. it was just

a dream somebody wished on me

so long ago i can't remember

their face. so, i ain't gonna.

wassa point?

Oh how many times the headspace can go there. I quit writing years ago. And a week ago. And today. 

I don't know how I missed this one, Lady A.

Maybe I may take a stab at lyrics, but I am not one for rhymes. Maybe if I write the rhyme scheme first - or don't rhyme - just need a catchy title and some ear capturing lines. Nina Simone sang "ain't got no mind" from Hair. Naw - too much work. I aint gonna :D ~thanks for stopping at Allet's place for a visit. slc
