A Poet To Be. - Poem by Douglas McClarty

I'm no literary expert
still struggling to spell
Stringing two words
A challenge for me.
But I'm determined
To be a poet, writer maybe
Not to write about daffodils
Though I wish I could
Or to write about mice
Maybe auld lang syne.
But made a start thinking
About what I'd write
To impress the likes of you
Cause you're important.
If I'm to be successful
I need to be profound
Words with the right sound
Try and make them rhyme
No not all of the time.
Let you look into my mind
Would worry about this.
Because of what you'd find
A half wit trying to write
What could be called
A load of, can't use that word.
So I will value all opinions
From literary experts not like me
On how and what to convey.
That'll brighten, enlighten
Someone in every way
Make their day and maybe night
With words from a poet to be.
