Suppose We See In Others - Poem by Francis Duggan

If you say I write doggerel well that suits me fine
Since what you think of me is your business not mine
But I've never referred to myself as a poet
Or as one who would be seen as worthy of literary note
If you see yourself as a poet well that's okay with me
You are after all what you think you must be
Your title of poet good for your self esteem
But with such comes responsibility or so it does seem
Since poets have been blessed with the gift to create
Beautiful original writing many them do celebrate
For yourself you've risen your literary achievement bar
But lets hope in literature you will go far
An average poetaster is how you describe me
Suppose we see in others what we want to see.
