    i am a poet
    and sometimes my poetry
    reflects life
    and to help my fellow man
    my thoughts i willingly sacrafice
    and as i push my pen across these blank pages
    my mind starts to calm as the ink rages
    out of the tip only to dry up on the page
    just like some people do when they think they've reached that stage
    when money becomes a problem
    and feel the weight of the world is on their shoulders
    i lend to them my words to help them get over

    Like the word, you that you speak

    I like the words that you speak, even though I woun't consider myself a poet, I dig the way you broke it down.
