    "The Poet"
    by AnonyMouse

    This is my poem. This is my mind.
    I wrote it myself, line by line.
    Empty pages. Fill them with thoughts.
    Trying to tame these ideas I’ve caught.
    Some say, “It holds me.” Some say, “It frees me.”
    Some say, “It’s simple,” and some say, “It’s easy.”
    But what they say of this art matters not,
    for difficulty departs when necessity knocks.

    Come rain or shine. Come snow or sleet.
    The pen and the paper are destined to meet,
    For the poet sees all. The poet feels all.
    It’s only a matter of which words he will call
    upon to relay the message that’s spoken,
    for there is no sleep once his pen is awoken.

    So this is my poem. This is my mind.
    I wrote it myself, but I don’t know if it’s mine.
    Because I took the things I’ve seen, time after time,
    asked what they mean, gave them some rhyme,
    and jotted them on anything I could find,
    because I am the poet.

    Congrats! For some reason I feel compelled to become a mailman or a poet, and I might have a better chance delivering the mail than a sonnet.
