The humble poet

Its sounds began to call me name at a young age 
And then the mighty pen opened the stage 

One evening my worthy heart shaped its tales
 From iron thoughts I bellowed the details
 
I found a place I could be me 
Where the wind grew and birds flew free 

I forged for years and brought forth my work 
To contests of many even in times of murk

Now I knew I had so much to learn 
So night after night the midnight oil I did burn 

Oh how it stirred my heart an moved my soul 
If only someone would enjoy my words before I grew old 

Now I still gush my words to places of many 
With my computer of speed leaving the paper and pen to envy
