A poet


A poet
am I
We are not so common
as one might believe
and yet I ache
to be heard
to be seen.

I do not write books
unless they are collections
of my poems
but these do not seem
to attract the attention
of the masses.

So I write for myself
and the few who believe.

Destiny will ordain me
if its meant to be.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
