Sink or Swim

Poet working another late night

Writing his bars under a dim lamp light

He can’t slow down life won’t let him

he puts it all on the front line

it’s the moment of truth

he’s got to sink or swim

“I Want To Be A Poet”

So one day, you sit & you say: “I want to be a poet”

It’s a beautiful goal to set, but it takes dedicated practice

to be any good at it and you’ve got to be sure

the fire of passion in your heart is fully lit

Would you still do it even if your critics threw fits?

or would you let them break your creative spirit?
