I Want To Be A Poet

I am a poet,
I want to remain as a poet,
I want to be a pure poet.

It is true, I know not
Till date, what is a poet.

And who is not a poet?
I want to know.
And what is the work
Of a poet? let me know.

One who creat
Is a poet
I said.

And creativity is
There in everybody.

Let the creativity
Be pure and
Let it be there
In simple forms,
For the benefits of all.

For others,
For you,
I am here.
Yes, I am a poet
This is the truth.

And the truth is
I love you.
I love all
The days, the nights,
The livings and
The non-livings as well.

And see
I am a permanent resident,
Nothing temporary
In my words,
In my actions,
And the results,
Never disappointing.

I am a poet
From the very morning
Till the evening.
