Today I will play by the rules,
I will not look for old poetry, not even my old book,
Things that are gone may be gone for a reason.
Instead, I will begin again, fresh and new as in the beginning.
A new title, a new topic, and this time some rules to play by.
No sharp objects to poke myself in the eye. And never any crime.
Love me for me though, I do have mad writing skills sometimes.
Be assured of my love and adoration, regardless of my name or my nation.
