My Name Is Joe

My Name Is Joe prose poem

Hello my name is Joe,
I’m from planet Earth.
I opened my eyes one day and found myself there.
Where I was before I do not know.
They taught me stuff, made me go to school.
To keep alive I found a job then passed on my genes.
I’m getting old now and I’m slowing down.
Soon I will close my eyes and be moving on.
Where I go next I do not know.
But I know it will be someplace else,
my dreams told me so.
Perhaps we’ll meet again.

From My Journals anxiety prose poem

The moon awaits eagerly in the same pedestal it ignited my passion. What lips, my lips have kissed, are long forgotten. The memories easily quickened as a few puddles along the way I voluntarily stepped in. What arms have lain
