I Want To Be A Poet - Poem by Chukwukere Timothy

I have read poems till my sentences got infected,
by words from each poets poem I've gone through.
I'll be an ungrateful liar if I say I'm not affected,
by their lyrics, whether made up or true.
My heart falls for poems
And married to the excellence of diction.
The league of poets, I dream to be one of them.
Poems creates imaginations
that flows through the mind like streams
washing away depression and fears
and cooling the hot heart that steams.
Poems can also generate regret and tears,
Making you sorry for every ugly thing you did.
When I be a poet,
Like Shakespeare, I won't write because of the need to feed.
but to show how fret i've become for all the ill-things in our
My lyrics would be heavy as a ton,
And will crush every odd.
My poems would sound like a gun,
Knocking down every ill bred.

    I believe that willing to be a poet is not enough to reach that goal, but I also believe that this will is the most important step to reach that level.
    Good luck Chukwukere :)
