The Poetry of 2014

In 2014 I wrote 2 poems. My Poem for the New Year 2015 was written in December but is presented on the page for 2015.

"Poem for the New Year 2014"
Poetry by Michael F. Nyiri

Here again another year passed
So much to express, yet so tired to the last
The words I speak are to myself
My life obscure, sitting on the shelf
Knowledge gained, and wisdom gathered
Yet nobody to listen, or to understand and care, rather
In the past I'd explode with verbosity
Teeming with epiphanies and curiosity
The world probably thought I talked too much
Encyclopedic rambles, alphabet soup and such
Over past years all these words just get wasted
Intelligent, prophetic, cannily copy/pasted
On internet "pages" the world shares it's soul
And I remain unfinished and less than whole
Perhaps the words I wrote will someday be read
Perhaps someone will listen when I'm long dead
Another annum alludes, as always, aware
The shrinking circle simply gets constrictive, not really fair
So these couplets will collide with warped words worn out 
The world will not share them, as I mutter, then shout
Here again another year passed
So much still to express, still so tired to the last
