The Poet - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

So, you think that you are a poet…
You write from your heart, because you know it.
You think your thoughts are important, so you show it.

Years from now your poems may be found and read.
The readers may question the words that are said.
Did the writer have all her marbles in her head?

Are the thoughts expressed purely fictional?
Some are normal, but others are very unusual.
The written words invoke images that are visual.

Within each poem are feelings that are unique.
Sometimes the emotions are extremely bleak.
Often humor is written with tongue in cheek.

There are many poems written about people with names.
They are characters who are real with portraits in frames.
They touch the life of the poet and are deserving of acclaims.

A world of discovery is portrayed with human voices.
Finding how to survive when making difficult choices.
Expressing triumphs of success with cheering rejoices.

There are many reasons why a poet writes with rhyme.
There is an inner desire to express memories in time.
There are needs to be creative and record a lifetime.
