Ordinary Poem - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

Some simple words of mine
Come from thoughts within;
They don't touch the heart,
The mind and soul of men.

Though the lines and words
Speak in meter and rhyme;
The sense is not enough
To make it so sublime.

Yes, words are down-to-earth,
So easy to understand;
But it won't earn a place
Among great poems in the land.

It isn't unusual or fancy,
Neither complex nor special;
But it comes from the heart
Of a poet without a pedestal.

Expecting not any rate and praise
From each and every one of them;
I only love, wanting to share
My ordinary poem.
