    I'm No Poet
    Suprised you didn't know
    Tried hard not to show it
    just someone who has a few words to display
    afta grabbin my pen and pad
    Mostly, it just comes out this way
    lyrically, spiritually and cre8ively speaking

    I'm No Poet

    I like to write
    My cursive looks real nice
    when I make my letters
    Asemblin my words
    That cre8 some insight
    Matchin my words with verbs
    that may not come out right
    Rhymes with good tymin
    Adjectives, predicates and nouns
    Is one of the ways of describing how

    I'm No Poet

    No more fightin
    for words that block my flow
    Off the the top of my head where
    stories, rhymes unfold
    for any season or reason
    Anything worth reading
    Pleasing to
    The mind of a different kind
    influx of ideas and writing styles

    But me, I'm No Poet

    Yeah I know I been voted

    *+"*+"*+"POET OF THE WEEK*+"*+"*

    So to speak
    My mood determines what I seek
    to write
    Paying my dues as I step up
    to da mic
    Like word salad mixed with flare
    topped off with a common
    Thread
    Tryin not to repeat
    What has already been said

    Poetry stretches thee
    across the meadows of your mind
    Deep inside cre8tivity awaits
    the chance to express
    all we have re-pressed
    Just as a rose blooms in the concrete
    Meeting of the minds
    meet
    deep understanding
    As only poetry knows what I mean

    Even though I experience these things....

    I Am No Poet
    ;)

    free2b_me - Some people are born with poetry in them. Some people find poetry on their own. And some people have poetry thrust upon them. I believe you have a little of each. And it isn't being labelled a poet that makes us one. It's the heart the reader discovers in our works which stamps that label upon us. So despite all protestations, we've seen your heart and you will be henceforth stamped............POET ! Love this work. Namyh

    Seems like the way you experience life is poetry in motion, and thus that is how it appears on the page. I loved this.
