Unpoetic - Poem by Rohan Roy

Am not a poet is what they say
not just they, even i say so
When someone asks me are you really a poet?
I have just one thing to say, NO!

Am not passionate about poems
Its just that i write them whenever i feel
Writing lines after lines
Is not a big deal

Sometime when sitting idle
I note down some lines
Even though am not a poet
But still the line rhymes

I dont have any poetic views
Nor any idea or emotion
When i take the pen in my hand
It keeps moving itself in a motion

My so called poems
Are not meant for anyone to read
I just write them and forget about them
They are nothing for my need

They still say am not a poet
Being a poet to them is nothing great
But when u tel them to write a poem
They will give 100 excuses and will say, it is so lame

    It's always hard to write about poets. Whether you realize it or not, you are poetically gifted, though whether you deem yourself as a poet is a personal decision. Some revision is needed. (Report) Reply

    its good. though not great. in parts its a bit contradicting. but for a poem about not being a poet, its very nice. (Report) Reply
