I Am A Poet, And I Stand Tall

Poem By Elizabeth Tews

I am a poet,
and I stand tall.
None of my friends are,
they are too young to understand...
But that doesnt change anything,
for I am poet,
and I stand tall.
They dont apprehend a poets life like mine,
For they are too young in the mind,
maybe not wise enough?
But that doesnt change anything,
for I am a poet and I stand tall.
I am not beautiful,
I am not extremely smart,
I am not phenomenal at any sport,
BUT I am a poet,
and I stand tall.

Comments about I Am A Poet, And I Stand Tall

A beautiful creation well articulated and nicely brought forth with conviction. An insightful poem written from the heart.
Dear Liza! it is so close to me. I have the same problems - no poets around me, like me. that really irritaes, ya? Nice poem! STAND tall with your poetry!
To be a poet ignore everything around you.Just compose what you feel in your soul.Follow the whispers of your invisible being.
Great poem! Perhaps you Are more than you know. It is good to just be yourself, and as a poet you can do just that. You are your own unique voice, a spark of the divine that has never been and will never be again. Keep being a poet and keep standing tall!
Well done Elazabeth. Reminds me of Maya Angelou's 'Still I Rise'. I give it a 10.

What Makes Her My Best Friend

What makes my friend,
Is the way she makes me laugh,
On purpose, or on fault,
A smile in which she brings to my face.

Smile, For You Are Pleasent

Smile a smile that shows who you are
Smile a smile that shows your inner beauty

Love,
a secret that shall not be shared
a hope inside my soul
an exultant feeling

Age Has To Do With Nothing

They dont listen.
Nobody listens to me.
'Your too young to be wise' they say
Age has to do with nothing.
