"Not all those who wander are lost." - J.R.R. Tolkien


Tell me, what words could tell a lifetime whole?
There are none; too few to describe the soul.
A curious thing is the writer's pen
That touches hearts and minds and transforms men,
Yet could not perform so simple a task
as showing myself should one person ask.
But if in my works one carefully reads,
He may catch a few brief glimpses of me.

The author's comments:
This is my first work submitted to Teen Ink. When I was messing with the About Me tab on the website, I thought the 250 character limit on the About Myself section was too small. Then this little poem came up in my head. It has no particular form.I just used an aabbccdd format and 10 syllables for each line.

This is a masterpeice! I had no idea you could write so well. I am sufficiently blown away.

Btw, this is Lizzie. I changed my username.

This is a great poem because it's something we can all relate to at one point or another.
You should check out some of my stuff. I think you would like it.
