I Am Not A Poet? Poem by Tribhawan Kaul

I Am Not A Poet?

Rating: 5.0


I am not a poet?

I am not a poet, mutated in womb
I am not a poet, born with a silver spoon
I am not a poet, left with poetic legacy
I am not a poet, boasting of a dynasty
I am not a poet, honed in workshops
I am not a poet, lined up in bookshops
I am not a poet, dissected in seminars
I am not a poet, enjoy backing of poetic czars.

I write poems, as I feel like expressing
in verses,
my emotions and my feelings
rhythmical or free, I worry not
to the poesy tenets, I stick not
my fault,
being sensitive to ongoing happenings
forth comes creativity in my writings.

Whenever and whatever touches my heart
words take shape in rainbow arch
with different colours and different shades
the form of poetry begins to shake
poetfriends always encourage me a lot
reading my poetry, not so hot,
don’t want to be the judge, so let it be
this is so far my poetic journey

But you are a poet left with a legacy! I stil remember, the first poem I read on your page was a poem written by your father! So you are the poet son of a poet father! I think most of us here don't have any such legacy to boast of! Still we all write to please our fancy! If others are delighted by our writings, it is a bonus! Enjoyed the poem!

Journey of a poet is very rough and tough. He has to face so many inward and outward problems.Thus he conceive emotional thoughts.Rather a poet is a finest sculptor of life long journey and expresses through words.
