    How to write a poem

    No one can teach the art of poems
    God grants the gift
    The flow has to be on
    The execution has to be swift

    You can’t be a scandalmonger
    It’s not an ordinary trade
    Few achieve printed immortality
    Like dust mediocre poets fade

    Love must be a must
    No lust craved on the forehead
    Praises to our beloved heroes
    The living and the dead

    Fear no man
    Even if it’s a king
    Fear tarnishes a scribe’s vocabulary
    Don’t be bribed with money and rings

    Passion must spill
    Then go for the kill
    Poetry is the perfect pill
    To cure anything that’s ill

    Oh how I love this

    This poem is what I've always believed...

    No one can teach the art of poems
    God grants the gift
    The flow has to be on
    The execution has to be swift

    You would not believe the amount of people who are taught in college...how to write a poem.

    You write a poem with your heart.

    Thank You!!!
