I sweat
To be a poet
Please wait
I’ll be a poet.

Please wait
Till a date
I’ll be a poet.

Finally of late
Confessing straight
Puzzled by words
I’m checkmate.

For sure I bet
I can’t be a poet! !

a very favourite piece to me, yes the poet doubts about himself, this almost playful piece worked beautifully for me, witful.

Greetings Ms. Nivedita, I read this poem, twice. I also read some of the comments left about this poem. I don't get it. I think this poem is full of nothing.. I like more meat in my poems.

You are already a poet. This is well done, but I thought it would be about chess. I love a good game of chess. Three of my poems are about chess. They are IGOR, ETERNAL GAME? and BULLDOG OF IDAHO CHESS.

The more I get of you, and I may not be qualified to judge these matters, but, the more I feel your verbiage is of the highest poetic standard. Buddy Bee Anthony
