A poet

  • What is a poet you may wonder

Why do they write or type what gives them bother

  • Why do they do the things they do what purpose does it hold

To write such things that are sad, happy, or bold

  • I will tell you why in these few words

And once you will know it will not be absurd

  • For we have and emotions and demons as you all know

And with these poets and poems makes us not so different and it shows

  • That we hate, fear, cry, and love the same things

It shows that everyone is normal we are human beings

  • It connects us unites us against the madness of this world

Shows that there is hope in men, women, boys, and girls

  • What is a poet I have told my spill

A poet is a literate warrior and it is easy to tell

          Thanks THETA
          Poetry is sweeter
          Than Prose
          As everyone knows !

          Thanks for sharing and caring
          I too enjoyed the power in the phrase
          The PEN is indeed ~ in a War of Words
          Much mightier than the sword !

          Yours ~ BRIAN (UK)
