JoAnne Tucker: Life, Love, And Everything In Between

 
Please help me welcome JoAnne Tucker to my blog. JoAnne writes novels, but she also writes poetry, and today she's going to share a poem with us.  JoAnne, I appreciate your coming to my blog. I can't write poetry to save my life, and I'm perfectly awed that you can. Here's a wonderful poem from her book.



I WAS
 
I was afraid to grow up.
Afraid of life.
I worried myself to death.
It was hard to breathe.
Like a fish out of water.
Like having asthma.
High school was hell-crazy wild.
My only plan.
Just get up and go.
Cant be like mom.
She always had a plan.
Living her life without any man.
Cant think that far.
Felt out of place.
Like dust floating in space.
Scared out of my mind.
Of what I might or might not find.
Cant hack relationships.
More drama.
Why waste the time.
Still confused, but still craving knowledge.
I need to do what I want-for myself.
Even if its just me who cares.
Even if no ones there.
It was a long hard road.
To get my act together.
All bad choices, solely I sowed.
Working for nickels and dimes.
Like a newborn.
Taking one step at a time.
