What is it to be a poet?

What is it to be a poet you ask?
It means to have an economy with words
to write about the obscenely beautiful
or even describe the routinely absurd!

Have words flow from wounds so deep
With a smile to hide away the pain
His words might only bring him grief
yet to others might comfort be gained

His few lines might a story tell
He agonizes over every verse
with words does he symphony make
his gift both blessing and a curse

The End
