Who am I?

I am a Poet.

I create because it's who I am

and who I am is what I'll create.

What my hands lack in craft I make up for with

my mouth as I spin large skeins of words and knit together 

a poem.

I can't afford anything so I'll give you Utopia,

a great SOMETHING comprised of NOTHING but

purple words and green dreams of 

how the world should be.

I can conjure up a forest cottage or a castle on a hill

surrounded by a sea of daisies and layers of hope.

And even though so much depends on

student loans and good grades,

I'm happily content with the fantasies I make

because I am a poet and 

I was born to create.
