Best Poem of Robert James Smith

I Stole This Poem

I stole this poem, yes I did
It isn't mine to publish
But every word I write myself
On paper reads like rubbish.

This gem says all I want and more
It shines my beacon bright
It's everything I would have said
If I knew how to write.

Women, gold and accolades
May rain down from the sky
I deserve to taste these things
Just once before I die.

I stole this poem, yes I did
To my eternal shame
I pierce my conscience with my pen
And sign my bloody name.

(Inspired by 'STEAL THIS POEM' by Brian Mayo)

Read the full of I Stole This Poem


they say a song cannot be true
without an ear to hear

therefore courage cannot stand
if there be naught to fear

knowledge void of wisdom
yields a perilous decree

for beauty cannot catch the eye
of those who will not see
