Poem - To Be a Poet

The poem “To Be a Poet” is about the statements that a poet can make. I’ve done most of these, and for this, I am a healthier person.


To Be a Poet

To be a poet
there is no test
to write poem
about the world
to document
it is not vain
to share your thoughts
words put to page
to scream your rage
at the machine
to shout with joy
at the beauty
to cry the tears
held in your heart
to cheer the victors
when your team wins
to imply the intimate
when libido yearns
to exclaim your place
for all to see
to stake a claim
in black and white.
