Steady Rotation – Author William Wright, Jr.


By each hysterical wind

I grow frail, dull and passive


From the reach

Of solid ground


The joyous hours

Spent racing

Are far and few


Blending the world

To a pulp

Of disorder and sound


Warm currents

Bring about

The full flair of elation


Until my treads sputter

And I give


For agony’s embrace


These moments all wheel

In constant havoc

As the daily roads

From which

I will never dare to stray

 My name is William Lorenzo Wright, Jr. I am the youngest of three children, as well as the only son to two loving and hard-working parents. I am a college student from San Diego California and I hold a deep passion for reading and writing poetry. I was sixteen years old when I first fell in love with poetry and I have been faithful to the craft ever since.
