I Am Not A Poet - Poem by Somanathan Iyer

Neither I a poet
Nor do I write
Scribbled are some words
That struggle out from thoughts

Appear they like poems to me
Neither metered nor rhythmic
Attract hardly other’s comments
Amazed to find some response at times

May be I lack skills in writing
May be my writes ignite none
May be some day they see the light
That day I become a poet of substance

    You are a poet dear Somanathan. In my view every one is a poet only some of them write. And you are writing. (Report) Reply
