The Poet Inside of Me

Custom User Avatar
More by this author
So what if I can’t rhyme my words right,
Or my lines just don’t flow?
I have a story I want to tell,
And I will make it known.

So what if I’m not the best writer,
Or not published in print?
I won’t be let down by rejection,
No, I won’t take the hint.

So what if writing is my passion?
I just want you to know,
I have a poet inside of me,
And I will let her show.

Omg!! I LOVE THIS! This is exactly how I felt when I first started writing. And because I was being strong in my dreams, they came true. I am now a semi finalist in a poetry contest in World Poetry Movement. Keep the faith. I love the poet inside of you already haha :D

This is a great poem. I actually write one titled The Reader Reads and I haven't submitted it to the site yet. It's kind of asdfghjkl. Argh, nyah! Anyway, I really like this poem. Good job, .Izzy.! :)))

 beautifully written i agree being rejected by publishers isn't gonna change my mind about writing are publishers writers they don't always know what it takes to write and it's their loss to lose out on great books and poems

I know! I'd think it be really ironic if this got published >.<
