In Order to be a Poet…..
You don’t have to be high brow, low brow or a cow.
You don’t have to be mad, bad or sad.
You don’t have to have a PHD, a GCSE or be an S.O.B.
You don’t have to be well read, well bred or dead.
Don’t have to be Greek, a geek or a freak.
Don’t need to be hairy, scary or a fairy.
Don’t need to be medicated, alienated or inebriated.
Don’t need to be poor, a whore or insecure.
Don’t need a Rolls-Royce, or to be James Joyce; just need your own voice.
So don't let what other people think stop you from achieving what you want from poetry. You don't have to be a cliché, you just have to be yourself.
