How To Become A Poet - Poem by Ayzhelle Mendoza

Poems are insights made by our hearts
controlled by our minds and
created by our hands.

Poems are like diaries
A form of expression, uniqueness,
and qualities.

It doesn't always have to rhyme
for the sake of applause or in exchange of a dime.
It doesn't have to be deep nor too shallow
As long as its purpose is made..it will follow.

You don't have to be rich and famous
To write a good poem
All you need to have is confidence, ideas,
a scratch paper and a working pen.

A professional and an amateur
doesn't have a lot of differences
A true poet can write with or without her experiences.

A true poet can get ideas from anyone
Not only from herself.
A true poet knows how to appreciate things
And respect the works of others.

Being a poet doesn't mean you are weak.
Or you'll be a part of their so called freak.
Being a poet only means you are part of queens and kings.
You are special coz you let your heart sing.
