I wish I was a poet
and could string those words together
plant the seeds in minds of men
I'm not too good, i know it

But I will try
until i get it right
cause I want so say things too

they may not make a lick of sense
I'm just trying to swim
right throught it

I may drown or
embarass myself
but it's all worth it
just to be among this group
of people we call poets.

(smile) thank you for having me.. and all the encouragement..

Wait a moment here!! You ARE a poet! Everyone in here is a poet in their own right. (Right???)
~sigh~ Give yourself more credit my dear... Even though people may say it, but not everyone can write a good poem. I've seen some of your work..and you're a fine poet. So, smile!!! And..don't compare yourself to others because you are unique. Which is the best thing of all!

I think you do wonderful work redwriter1, but remember, that true poetry comes from the heart in a form no words could ever truly express. When it comes down to it, your opinion of yourself is all that matters, you are the only one who has to look at yourself in the mirror each morning and be okay with the person who stares back at you!
