If I understood where this came from I might be able to explain to you why I wrote it...but...?

A poet I do not purport to be…


 


I just do enjoy immensely writing,


I also do enjoy the art of rhyming,


But to be more than honest,


My true passion does come from that of the right…


 


Though throughout the years,


I have been in places left,


I really do have no fear,


What writing I do does for all,


Make others and myself able to see me much more clear…


 


If I were to admit to the fact,


That I were a poet, I would do so with little tact,


Sometimes I may actually write,


But it seems as if I am therein quite cracked,


Or then again I have written a great deal,


That may be considered by some to be mostly abstract…


 


So if you do believe yourself to be a poet,


I can honestly say that you must to yourself know it,


I wish I could say the same of myself,


For me to know the self better, I need to self-commit…

Yep just write and I often find that when the mood is right I can rhyme but mostly I just like prose. Although I am beginning to like other forms of poetry found here.

Then I would say that you are both a writer and a poet; so write and poet on!
