Our life is overpowered by pen and ink
rhythm and rhymes we always think
Verses and stanzas daily our plate
writing has influenced our fate.
A notebook is always around
thoughts and ideas gets jotted down
In poetic form when something to say
we convey our messages every day.
We make many voices heard through our art
poems are our trump card
The poet inside of us cannot be silent
it comes out screaming like a vicious giant.
