I Am Not A Poet?

I am not a poet?

I am not a poet, mutated in womb
I am not a poet, born with a silver spoon
I am not a poet, left with poetic legacy
I am not a poet, boasting of a dynasty
I am not a poet, honed in workshops
I am not a poet, lined up in bookshops
I am not a poet, dissected in seminars
I am not a poet, enjoy backing of poetic czars.

I write poems, as I feel like expressing
in verses,
my emotions and my feelings
rhythmical or free, I worry not
to the poesy tenets, I stick not
my fault,
being sensitive to ongoing happenings
forth comes creativity in my writings.

Whenever and whatever touches my heart
words take shape in rainbow arch
with different colours and different shades
the form of poetry begins to shake
poetfriends always encourage me a lot
reading my poetry, not so hot,
don’t want to be the judge, so let it be
this is so far my poetic journey

    You did a statement about your ink in poetry
    asking what your poetic journey is....
    maybe the answer is between your own words:
    Whenever and whatever touches my heart
    words take shape in rainbow arch
    with different colours and different shades
    the form of poetry begins to shake...

    nice is your poetic journey with good understanding of the craft..you are a poet of socio-political leaning....and as a poet you are tru to your heart as it is stated in this stanza ''I write poems, as I feel like expressing
    in verses,
    my emotions and my feelings
    rhythmical or free, I worry not
    to the poesy tenets, I stick not
    my fault,
    being sensitive to ongoing happenings
    forth comes creativity in my writings....

    But you are a poet left with a legacy! I stil remember, the first poem I read on your page was a poem written by your father! So you are the poet son of a poet father! I think most of us here don't have any such legacy to boast of! Still we all write to please our fancy! If others are delighted by our writings, it is a bonus! Enjoyed the poem!
