Use your imagination and jot your mind on paper.
Being a Poet
Sept 11, 2010
By Rose Marie Rideout
If you can use your imagination,
You will soon realize,
When you place these words on paper,
They will come alive.
A poem is a thought, a worry,
Sometimes happy, sad, or lost,
But those words make you a poet,
No matter what the cost.
Put your words on paper,
Sign it with your name,
For these words are from you,
You have nothing to lose only gain.
Your imagination is wonderful,
It can take you anywhere, anytime,
It can make you who you choose to be,
Any place or person of any kind.
You can be a prince upon a throne,
Or a lonely old lady, living all alone,
You can be from riches or from poor,
Anything at all, behind that closed door.
If you could just run wild,
Let your imagination run free,
There’s so much talent hidden,
From a poet, you will see.
