The Poet's Apology - Poem by Rachel Flint

Forgive me I am a poet
It is my compulsion
To be sentimental
To dream of a better world
To answer questions nobody asked

It may seem to you pointless
To worry about a fullstop
The placing of a single word
Or think of a rhyme scheme that fits

Ignore me
If I seem to rant on
About injustices
The pomposity of politicians
And the foibles of modern life

And if I speak of love
Life and death
And boring subjects like that
Indulge me
I'm a poet I can't help it

    again flint, your voice is found, and you make it almost effortless when you let your voice out, i do not appreciate many, you are some of that few, you are watchwoman on the tower of feelings (Report)Reply
