An Authors Struggle

a great poet
is not what I claim to be
but my words
I wish for the world to see

I don’t seek
riches, righteousness, or fame
I don’t care
if you even remember my name

so I write
these things I hold so dear
you read them
my hopes, dreams, and fears

forget all
those things you’ve been taught
share with me
your opinions and thoughts

open minds
are what you must possess
take your time
for this is a worthy test

study them
these words I’ve penned for others
share them all
with your sisters and your brothers
