I AM A POET.

1.

I am a poet.

When I say that I’m writing

I really mean, “working.”

2.

I am a poet.

I “work things out” on paper,

and speak metaphors.

3.

I am a poet.

You don’t want to piss me off.

I’ll write how, “you’re wrong.”

4.

I am a poet.

Sometimes at a loss for words

Until the muse hits.

5.

I am a poet

 That writes in all four seasons

About this and that.

6.

I am a poet

Giving voice to the voiceless

With my pen and tongue.

7.

I am a poet

Stealing moments from my life 

For the time to write.

8.

I am a poet.

“Touched” by logophilia;

But I ain’t crazy.

9.

I am a poet

Writing what the voices say

Inside of my head.

10.

I am a poet

That lives nearby writers block

In a house of words.

11.

I am a poet.

What you might call, “eavesdropping”

I call, “field research.”

12.

I am a poet

Driven to inspiration

Accidentally.

13.

I am a poet

And a spoken word artist

Tha Funky Wordsmyth

14.

I am a poet.

I transform mundane moments

Into works of art.

15.

I am a poet

Speaking through haiku poems-

Not following (the) rules.

16.

I am a poet.

If I write this enough times-

I’ll finish this piece!
