For as long as I can remember since I was a wee wonder, a little child

Putting words on paper would always make me smile

The Poet in Me

Drives my need to express my feelings on this and that

The Poet in Me

Let’s me be simplistic

The Poet in Me

Allows me to be complex

The Poet in Me

Can be tough as nails

The Poet in Me

Can soft as a baby’s skin

The Poet in Me

Goes deep as the oceans floor

The Poet in me

Can be shallow like the water’s edge

The Poet in me

Bears all from the depths of my soul

The Poet in me

Shutdown and hides when life takes it toll

The Poet in me

Loves the power of words

The Poet in me

Hates the abuse of words

The Poet in me

Respects creative expression

The Poet in me

Wakes each day with a desire to write

The Poet in me

True to my gift, my craft

The Poet in me

Is and will always be! 4/5/12


Let’s celebrate the beautiful of creative expression. Happy Sweet 16, Poets!For more information go to http://www.poets.org

pen and paper, words”
