Decisions, Decisions – Poetry Reading by Marcus J King

Watch the August 2016 Poetry Reading.


Performed by actor Julian Ford

Get to know the poet:

1) What is the theme of your poetry collection?

The theme of the poem is a maze to get out of “something”

2) How would you like people to respond when they read or watch your poetry reading?

I would love for people to think about the direction they are going in and when they get to the ending, laugh, and go back and decide if they actually made a wrong turn.

3) How long have you been writing poetry?

I have been writing poetry for about 3 years now.

4) Do you have a favorite poet?

My favorite poet is Thomas Hardy; Having to do a essay on him opened my eyes to poetry and the different depth it can go.

5) What influenced you to submit to WILDsound and have your poetry performed by a professional actor?

I was browsing some other writers work on Reader. They use a feature called recommended blogs that to relate to mine. I stumbled upon WILDsound and I wanted to reach more people to be noticed in the writing community.

6) Do you write other works? scripts? Short Stories? Etc..?

My other works are fiction; 2 novels; 1 of them is soon to be published in 2017; short stories; and of course poetry. I am getting into memoirs as well.

7) What is your passion in life?

My passion is write and tell a story that speaks to the heart to make you feel some type of way whether happy, sad, or in between.


Decisions, Decisions, Poetry by Marcus J. King

Genre is funny and hope


Decisions, Decisions by: Marcus J. King  


Stuck. Lost. A brick wall.


Go left. Go right.


Make a left turn. Around the corner.


There…yes go that way!


Keep going…a little bit further.


Dead end. Dern it.


I can’t seem to get a break.


U-turn to the last possible mistake.


Left turn. Right turn.


I see a hill. Go straight.


Turn right. Turn left.


Keep going….just a few more steps.


Ahhh. I see a hill and openness.


I found the way. Almost there.


Wait no…going too fast.


There’s a cliff right there.


Abruptly stop.


Cliffs edge and the open blue sea.


Deceitful little hill back there.


Might as well enjoy the view.
