To Be A Better Poet–A Poets Creed

by Samuel De Lemos

I want to be a better
poet, to say things
with delicacy.

to describe a scene
perfectly.

I want my words to
have meaning and
not get snagged
in the echoes of
mediocracy.

Nothing comes
so easily, without
dedication, hard work
and perseverance, this
goes without saying.

To the men and women
who dedicated themselves
to this art, I beg of
you, teach me to
be inspired and
to be
smart.

Let the words
that flow
from my pen
be formed with
the ink of
my heart,

and give credence
to this indelible
art.
