Poems are part of me


Poems are part of me, until
I become part of them.
I have to write, what I hear, see and feel.

When poems are written, the world shall stop
and listen to what was said,
as a poet, I hope it's not a flop.

When ever I die, the poem will live on,
always read, always praised,
long after I'm gone.

    I like.....and it's true. When we write it seems the whole world stops-and as we began to write or type we can think about nothing but the words that come falling from our mind....Long after we're gone, true, poems will live on....
