i am a poet because...

i am a poet because

i have been suppressed

 

i am a poet because

i will not be held back

 

i am a poet because

i have been told not to write

 

i am a poet because 

it is dangerous

 

i am a poet because

i have been threatened

 

i am a poet because

i enjoy the thrill

 

i am a poet because

i have been arrested for writing

 

i am a poet because

i will never give up

 

i am a poet because

I Am Strong
