Wear Shoes

This is a poem that I wrote while taking one of my first creative writing classes and it is one of the few pieces that I don't currently intend on changing much. At least I don't know what to do to it and I am about as satisfied as any self deprecating writer can get with any of his works. It's simple, short and sweet so I figured it would be good to start with.

Wear Shoes

When promises
the pieces,
so sharp,
can never
be entirely
swept up.
They just sit
on the floor,
eager to
a tender soul
without a shoe.

First Entry

Hello all and welcome,

Hopefully this will be the first of many entries. My name is Thomas Taylor, but I use the name T.J. Seale to write under. I attend Stephen F. Austin in Nacogdoches, TX and am currently a Junior in the creative writing program. I plan on posting much of my poetry here along with the occasional short story. Comments and suggestions are welcome, hell you can even flame me if you prefer, but be sure you mean what you say and aren't just being an elitist asshole. If you are an elitist asshole I love you anyway and I already forgive you for whatever you are going to say.

Everyone enjoy and thanks for giving me a look,
Thomas Taylor
