Being a Poet

Being a Poet short poem

Being a poet doesn’t mean you just rhyme at the end of the line.
For me it is a chance for readers to relate to the views that are mine.
I usually try to write great poems to inspire the hearts of all.
I do this with hopes of sparing others from some needless fall.

I do this with hopes that others will be lifted up by my works.
I do this with hopes to give anyone light in life’s darker merks.
I do this with hopes of joy for those who may be needing a smile.
I do this with hope of hope for those who are walking a harder mile.

I hope today that my waking efforts will not be completely in vain,
For I would love to spare everyone or aid in lifting them from pain.
So my message today for all those who have the skill to write,
Please use it in a way that will give your readers a guiding light.

A light that will shine them through the many stormy days ahead.
A light that will give them courage to lead the life they want led.
That, to me, is what good poetry should be all about.
Raising everyone up, instead of letting them wander in doubt.

Share your knowledge, share your wisdom to all who will read.
Then it will be up to them whether they choose to heed.
But your hands will be washed clean for you have done your part,
If you have shared true knowledge from the guidance of your heart.
