A Tiny Bit Of Self Belief - Poem by sylvia spencer

I am no poet, because people have told me so.
I am no story teller, that at least I know.
I could never be a Novelist because I have no flare
but I have creative writing, and mine is rare.
A poem to me is writing to rhyme yet most poets
think that's a capital crime.If I get a score of ten
then I think I've done well, but most of the time poets
fly in like bats out of hell.They try to tell me about all
the great poet's but all they are a load of know it's
The words I write may not be to their perfection and
they certaintly would not win a poetry election.
My pen and I just love to write free and that's the
way it will always be. It matter's not that I will never
be top but my pen and I will never stop.
Most poets think that my words are meaningless
but my self belief say's I'm a genius.

    Wish we all had your self belief Sylvia.I have come to the conclusion that its the inner soul that counts in writing.Two elements come to mind.Imagination and Creativity.You have got both in plenty.No amount of polishing can turn an unworthy piece into a gem.

    So add one thing more to your self-belief - you ARE a story teller, because your characters literally come alive when you write..I know, cause I have met some of them! ! Red Bird (Report) Reply
