I am a poet
Though you may not know it
I'm the average boy
But the pen is my toy

On crumpled paper I write
My heart and soul in visible sight
Pain and pleasure scribbled in ink
It may seem pointless, but its more than you think

Words are my weapons I use them to vent
All my fury and fire, Anger floods from my pen
But words are of wisdom, they help me to see
All the beauty and people, that are special to me

Who knows where life leads, but of one thing I'm sure
My pen will be with me, as I slowly mature
People and Places fade and decay
But the words of my mind will be mine everyday

I created this poem by just allowing myself to write and seeing what happened, this is the result :)

This was completely relatable, my friends always tease me for scribbling words onto pages but I've never been able to explain my motives as clearly as this. I have half a mind to show it to those friends, maybe they'll understand when you explain
