A Poet


A Poet is not defined or confined,

a Poet is free-spirited and fluid.

Those who try to define

the works of a Poet

will find a Poet’s works have ways to evolve.

A Poet is not confined because a

Poet can find ways to escape.

A Poet will escape through a pen,

in the form of words on paper or through art.

A Poet will write under the disguise of a muse,

or become infused into lines, rhymes, or stanzas.

A Poet will not conform to boundaries placed by others.

A Poet will continually transform from ink to words-

from words to ink.

A Poet will create his or her own world,

or savagely tear down walls and change the world

just to escape or be redefined if necessary.
