A post for the creative types.


How many words are left in me

How long until I’m all I can be

When will the course have run its route

When will words no longer come to mind

When will my heart be blind

Never short-change yourself, Symanntha. You ARE a POET, whether you write one poem a month or 50. A poet is one who writes poetry – and does this not include you? Embrace who you are. Celebrate!
