I Am a Poet

 

When I began writing poetry I tried to make one person happy…me. I read the poetry of others and discovered amazing blogs and posts and felt intimidated But I kept writing because I wanted to see how I could be.

 

I am an artist who paints with words,

 

Splashing color and feelings around,

 

I am a musician who saturates the air,

 

Strumming across hearts with sound.

 

I am a doctor who feels the wounds,

 

Stopping the bleeding of those in pain.

 

I am a teacher who educates a child,

 

Sharing wisdom like drops of rain.

 

I am a world citizen who lends a hand,

 

Giving a village a new chance.

 

I am someone who cares about others,

 

Challenging the world to dance.

 

If I could add a few golden words,

 

Changing frowns into glorious grins,

 

Then I would know I’ve done my job,

 

For a smile is where poetry begins.
