I'm not a poet

I'm not a poet,

I just write about how I feel

I'm not a poet,

my words aren't about birds and bees

I'm not a poet,

I write about my experiences

I'm not a poet,

I have not seen a penny or any kind of financial gain

I'm not a poet,

I started to write to release some held in pain

I'm not a poet,

I write about giving in to the drink

I'm not a poet,

I write about my random thoughts and things I think

I'm not a poet,

Author's Notes/Comments:

This was definitely a hot poem. Even though you aren't a poet, you sure sound like one. I really enjoyed your poem.

writing is about formality of form,poetry is what comes from the heart and soul. You ARE a poet! Beautiful piece!
