Ode To A Poet

I wrote this because I am my worst critic.  I'm learning how not to critize what I write.

You are a Poet, indeed you are
The words you write
Resonates deep within so many hearts

The way you pen your words
Is masterfully crafted
Poetry in motion
Full of joy and laughter

Whether you write complete stanzas
Or only a few lines
You take your reader on the same journey
You created in your mind

You have talent and you are skilled
You are the poet
The world needs to hear

Rosalyn M. Lampkin

    Rosalyn, I hope everyone reads this poem. We all have self doubts about our writing skills, but this affirmation helps restore our sense of worthiness. Lovely poem! Best wishes, Carolyn
