I Am A Poet - Poem by Dena Leichnitz-Amos

I am a poet
And not for what I write
But because of what I feel
And my unique insight.

I am a poet
And not for my words
But for my wisdom
And the lessons I learned.

I am a poet
But it never was a choice
My muse can't be silenced
For it has its own voice.

I am a poet
It is who I was born to be
And it resides so deep
That I shall never be free.

For as long as I live
There shall always be a part
That lives on the page
But comes from my heart.

I am a poet
And not for what I write
But because of what I feel
And my unique insight.
