I am a poet. I am deep and I know this. My soul flows as profoundly And as intricately as these lines. My heart beats rhythmically And powerful, like my rhymes. My message pierces deeply, Severing ties, Deception dies. I am a poet. With this pen I write, Righting wrongs, Words singing songs Of truth and lies, Of love and hate, Sorrow and Joy, Life and death. I am a poet. The messenger who brings His perception of all things In plain view, for all to see. One who defies falsities Within himself and within the world. I write for me, and for the little boys and girls So that they too might write, and see realness unfurled And made companion to Clarity, So we all can see. Maybe another poets views might even enlighten me. I welcome it, I am open to all things Mentally and spiritually. For; I am a poet.
