A Poet is Born

This poem encompasses everything that i love about writing but also expresses everything that i struggle with when writing

I love writing, the freedom it encompasses

An outlet for anger, the emotions it manages

The depression it overcomes, the smile it provides

The priceless gift, the anguish subsides


I hate writing, the stress it emphasises

The anger rages on, the emotion I fight with

The depression sets, smiles become rare

The endless curse, the joy isn’t there


A full mind hidden in an empty page

A full pen driven to extinction by an endless gaze

Finding the sentences to match, lost in search

Losing time filled with fulfilment, found in words


Words come together, a sentence forms

Sentence turns into a statement formed

Love nurtures, a statements growth

A poet is born as the poetry evolves
