never was

I am, he said, the never was,
the story never told
I went nowhere, did nothing
for love or hate or gold
I took no steps to greatness
nor left the rest behind
while others strove for glory
I paid them nevermind
my chapter in the history books
may not be full of life
but better it says nothing
than talks of grief and strife

    I wanted to comment but since you never were and aren’t here, neither is your poem..
    *SNERK* πŸ˜€ Actually it’s a very good poem and I liked it, especially the last line!

    • Thank you πŸ˜€ this was another poem where I spent days trying to think where it goes from here, before deciding it was complete as it stood πŸ˜€

      • Good poem, it’s a keeper.
        A Cheerios commercial at the end. When did that start?
        Having a uninvited guest tomorrow named Sandy.Do not want.

        • Thank you πŸ˜€ but I don’t get your reference…

          I hope you manage to get snugged up before it hits, and that it isn’t as bad as people fear.

            A Cheerios ad showed up between your poem and the comments, thought you put it there so I watched it.
            I’ve got gas for the genny,water stored for critters, down comforter for Mawm,non-perishable fuds,battened down hatches,and NO FEERS!
            Prawblee won’t be back till November so I’ll have some rhyme and verse by you to catch up on. Something to look forward to after cooking on charcoal for a week. Hope to see you then, sunovawot!

            • Please ignore any adverts you see on this blog. In a moment of weakness last week I decided to buy “sunovawot.com” and going through the rigmarole I seem to recall mention that for more money i could be advert free, but that any adverts would be few and far between if I didn’t pay extra. I had, to be completely honest, forgotten all about it, and I never saw the advert so you confused me. Not though that that is a particularly onerous task. πŸ˜€

              Keep yourself and your family safe, and I will see you when I see you πŸ˜€
