Poets Are The Way They Are - Poem by Faith Elizabeth Brigham

poets are the way they are
because they were born that way
they are the sensitive souls
crying out to be heard

the rapt attention given
to their own feelings
easily spills onto the page
emerging from the very core
of their being

poets take the world seriously
while still being able
to laugh at themselves from
time to time and they are
driven to do what they do

poets are the way they are
they believe in the beauty
of their dreams
