Not a poet

~By Stephen Blackwood 

It’s not poetry, they say, the stuff that I write. 

But, I do my best to describe my emotions.

Without any nuance, without a shred of grammatical knowledge, I write. 

Hell! Forget poetry; without the autocorrect, I cant even get the spellings right!

It’s not poetry, they say, the stuff that I write. 

But, just a jumble of random words. Nothing poetic.

Does that make me a non-poet?

Maybe. 

But, I do my best. 

Always have & always will.

And I’m proud of my work.

Poet or not; that’s enough for me to keep writing. 

More than enough.
