Aren't We All Just Poets?

March 5, 2008
By Katrina Streeter, Franklin, NH

What makes a poet a poet
And not a thoughtful teen?
Writing down every action,
Every thought and what we've seen

Don't we at some point
Just ponder for a while
What made us angry, made us cry

And what always made us smile?

Don't we write it somewhere

Not just on paper white?
And don't we argue with ourselves

On what is wrong and right?

And isn't that all a poet does?

With the world he shares his word?
So aren't we all a bunch of poets?

Shouldn't we all be heard?
