I Am A Poet

I am a poet, So weakly defined

Mostly a hermit, Rarely speak my mind

Have not more value, Than the words that I write

In hopes that my words, Please someone inside

I am a poet, A fly on the wall

Of life as it were, Little social at all

But at times I will write, A few choice words

In hopes that those words, Indeed will be heard

I am a poet, Someone who cares,

But rarely shows it, At times I don't dare,

To reach out my arms, For fear of rejection

And in so doing, Cause my own reflection

I am a poet, A bringer of words

A singer of songs, Bard on paper poured

When I recieve inspiration, Within my own mind

I share with myself, The knowlege I find

I am a poet, With no special trait

Except to those few, Who appreciate

The words on the paper, The feeling in the lines

The notes of good tidings, And bad ones at times

Yes I am a poet, Insignificant in truth

In my own words I learn, Both adult and in youth

Should you find my words pleasing, And deep to the heart

Perhaps I have touched you, Perhaps that's a start

Having the ability to express how the inside feels, makes wonderful words for the outside!

The words spoken in this hub is so true. Wonderful job expressing the true deep feelings and thought processes of a poets mindset. I voted up and enjoyed reading this hub very much.
