Ode to ordinary

Ode to ordinary

There’s no real reason for the questions and stares

I’ll give my confession with the utmost care

I love the sweet silence

And my afternoon walks

No drugs, sex, or violence

Just friendly little talks

None of those fast cars or strange worlds

No need for a revolving door of girls

You pity and you shame this ole life

I don’t have pain and I pass on the strife

Look at my face, ask why it’s turned up

Nothing says Grace like my wonderful luck

Just give me that mundane, simple, and bare

Oh, yeah baby, this is my ode to the ordinaire

love poems

About the Creator

23, Black, queer, yup
