Can I call myself a poet   
If I write about my home,
Instead of fancy castles?
If I write when I’m bored
Just all things ordinary          
without a thesaurus beside me,
Just to fill a mental hole ?

Can I call myself a teacher
If I teach someone to love
Themselves, with no regrets
Teach them why they matter
And why they deserve the world ?

Can I call myself an Artist
If I can stain the sheet,
And shatter the monotony with
Thoughts that lay disarray ?

Can I call myself human
If I let other humans be
Without gashing someone’s spirits
Or providing to the chaos,
That devours the world as a whole ?

Can’t we all just seek our calling
For it leads no harm and wrecks no hope
just feeds minds with lessons,
Of positivity ,joy and encouragement
And triumph to the soul.
