I am a Poet

I am me

Express yourself anyway you can

I am

A poet

A poet

I am

So much so

That I use words

To play

With people

I am

A poet

A poet

I am

For I can explain

My life

In a few

Stanzas

I am

A poet

A poet

I am

A life

Once revered

Is a life

Now lived

I am

A poet

A poet

I am

For there is

Nothing more painful

Than

The pain of sorrow

I am

A poet

A poet

I am

But not winning

The award

For

The most traumatized

I am

A poet

A poet

I am

Connecting

In a world

That knows

only separation

I am

A poet

A poet

I am

Surrendering

The limelight

Accepting

The darkness

I am

A poet

A poet

I am

Creating a new life,

Different from the one

That

Wrote my poems for me

I am

A poet

A poet

I am

Juxtaposing

The future

With

The past

I am

A poet

A poet

I am

Entitled

To serve

Only

In one way

I am

A poet

A poet

I am

Cheating

My way

Out of pain

I once felt

I am

A poet

A poet

I am

Writing

my way

To

Paradise

I am

A poet

A poet

I am

Engulfed

In

love

– healed

I am

Me

Me

I am

Thrive Global
People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
