A Poet's Mind

Written by: Gail Franklin

An emotional outlet
A chance to be free
My way of conveying
What’s happening in me

My thoughts trickle out
Of the ink in my pen
I keep writing so madly
As if there’s no end

A poetic expression
A story to tell
Sometimes it’s like heaven 
Sometimes it’s like hell

Don’t sit and judge me
For my words have no voice
It’s a born infliction
Not of my choice

I may not hold conversations
Or have pictures to see
Just read what's in print 
If you want to know me
