I am not a poet.
I merely speak in emotion.
Whether it rhymes melodiously,
Or is a mass of confusion.

When my heart cries out,
In pain or in pleasure,
I scribe the words carefully,
For others to treasure.

When I have a long day,
And it all seems too much,
My poetry I lean on,
For it is the perfect crutch.

Whether in tale of love lost,
Or just a random observation,
My words can soothe me,
Bringing the greatest consolation.

And if through my poems,
Your mind has been eased,
I am truly honored,
And no less than pleased.

 I am not a poet, I am merely one who speaks in emotion

Great response to a challenge!

 Did Jesus laugh?
I think He did,
'cause He was once
a little kid;
and all of us
were made with joy
both sugar-spice girl
and snake-snail boy!
