I Am Not Yet A Poet… - Poem by Obinna Nwerem

I am not yet a poet
I have lied to my heart
Now I can no longer write
Tonight I lay awake
Without a single word to write

I dreamth a dream without a poem
All my poems were yet to be written
I was to become a poet that I am yet to become
With forms no man can discover

If I was to become a poet
All was to be taken from me
tears would have been shed for Annabell Lee
I was to die in time like those in the past
On my own lone and dead
