Bad Poetry: Embarrassing Reveal Part 10

Sep 25, 2017 | designingLULA

I visited my parents in Texas and pulled out from the dusty depths of my old bedroom closet, a box. It had been stored at the bottom of this closet for a multitude of years. I kind of knew what was in it but over the years had forgotten about the memories that awaited. Well to my horror and surprise, there was pages upon pages of teen angst poetry. It’s so, so bad that it’s almost good in its horribleness.

So in the spirit of this blog of designingLULA, it would be a shame if I didn’t share some of these gems into the psyche of my teen angst self. Hahaha…enjoy.


Opportunity Knocks
(undated, sometime between 1991-1994)

Thump, bump, bump, went the bus
A handful of faith
An armful of butterflies
Bumpity, bump, thump
My heart jumps
Thump, tap, bump
Oops! There goes my drums
Boom, clang, cling, bang
Hah! I knew I should of locked it
