I'm Not A Poet or A Writer


I am not a poet
I am not a poet or a writer
I don't have the grammar and sometimes the spelling
But I have slogans that can burst your flames
Make you so angry and make you untamed
Make you so happy, and shed a tear
I am not a writer but I love words
Every experience becomes a diary
Every taught or idea becomes explained
Each words has it meaning, and each brings emotions
Words has rhythms, and some just rhymes
There is no directions to where it is leading
What is a poet if she didn't use her heart?

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
