The Poet (Poem)

Take a little time and carefully listen

We are about to learn a simple life lesson

The Poet is who this is about

That his message would surely not leave us to doubt

The style of poetry be it freestyle or tradition

Are all done with one simple mission

His heart to words his ultimate goal

That I might understand them more as a whole

With words, he expresses his thoughts to a T

That I might take his message with me

His choice of words are well articulated

So by them, I may be properly educated

Poetically he chooses to express his thought

So that my ears and heart would reject it not

Verbally he chooses to be communicative

That by his message I would be cognitive

His words with the hope of living in the moment

So that you and I would not be left dormant

The choice to listen is yours and mine

Let us ponder this for a little more time

One day a poem formed in my mind, it happened as a result of an experience I was going though. So I wrote it down and haven’t stopped writing since.

I’m not skilled in grammar and punctuation or even spelling, but I do have a gift for translating my feelings, thoughts and emotions into words, that people can relate to.

My motivation for writing comes from a deeply rooted desire I have to encourage and motivate people.

I know the loneliness, that darkness that leads a person to contemplating suicide, that was once me. I had no one that understood the pain, agony and darkness I was going through.

And that is why I write and share publicly, in hope that I might encourage another human soul needing desperately to hear, “There’s hope, you’re not alone in your struggle”.

I haven’t figured out everything, but what I have figured out I write about, and sometimes I bleed words turning them into poetry.
