I Am Not A Poet

This is in no way written to insult all the poets out there. I think you guys are amazing. I just have always felt I am not a poet, or at least not yet. People say that you need to write a certain way to be called a poet, but that's not true. It doesn't matter what you write about, your words matter. Don't let anybody tell you otherwise. 

I am not a poet,
I do not write about politics,
And how it makes me sick.

I am not a poet,
I do not write about global warming,
And how its effects are getting pretty alarming.

I am not a poet,
I do not write about feminism,
And how hard women have to fight against chauvinism.

I am not a poet,
I do not write poems that will blow your mind,
And ones that are perfectly rhymed.

I am not a poet,
I write about what I know but there is very little that I know, 
And so my verses are not diverse. 

I am not a poet,
I write about heartbreak and love,
Or at least what I know of it.

I am not a poet in your eyes, 
But I write poetry,
And that is enough for me.

JN is the one who doesn't take chances, but she's working on that. She's powering through life, one day at a time. Even with all that life throws her, you'll always see her with a smile. She's a hopeless romantic, hopeless beyond repair. You may say she's a dreamer, but she's got her feet on the ground.
