This poet speaks
Even when I’m not spoken to
My goal is hopefully to have broken through
The barriers Of what is true and what is make-believe
Because the truth in poems
That I make I make up
May just make you see things more clearly
Constantly questioning, “Can you hear me?
Knowing at my best politicians fear me.
Can you feel me?”
Do you understand what I’m talking about?
Sometimes I have to scream & shout
To get my point across
But the only way to find the right way
Is to first realize you’re lost…
This poetry is painful
Looking for the rainbow
Yet I share my most private quiet conversations
& tell my stories
With poetic exaggerations…
I am the poet.
