The Poet in Me

Written by: Desiree Gapuz

This is the best way to channel my emotions
A positive way to pour out negative thoughts
A convincing way to share my doubts
A friendly way to cater hostility
A revealing way to conceal my secrets
An inspiring guide when my faith falls

I am a poet
 I am a dreamer
I am the thought the crosses your mind
I am the gullible shadow that chases you
I am a lullaby puts you to sleep
And I am the loveless soul that haunts your tears.

This is what I will be
This is what I am
This is what I was
This poem is me
