Every Day...to continue

"I write poems every day,

because I'm a poet.

I write poems every day;

because that's the best way

I know to express myself.

Every day I write a poem I

get better at what I own;

the passion for the spoken


I don't have to write a poem

every day, but I chose too.

Not many of you will

understand the why? Only

creative minds like mine

understand the why?

We were poets before our

time, chosen before birth to

narrate life as we see it,

share feelings many keep

inside, share ideas and views

some consider bias.

For they say artists have a

troubled past they carry; I use

it today to inspire me, and

remind never to look back.

Although, at times I wonder

what will be of me if I wasn't

a poet?"
