Being A Poet

A poem about writing poetry.

I’ve locked myself in my office and thrown away the key,
I’m listening to music and trying to write beautiful poetry,
I’ve got my bag of funyons and water bottle,
it’s time for me to go full throttle.

I drank an energy drink a little while ago,
I’m ripped off of this caffeine, just wanted you to know,
I wanted today to be a heavy writing day,
because I have so much that I want to say.

Is this what it means to be a poet,
and I simply just didn’t know it,
when am I ever going to leave this room,
I’m trying to have a conversation, but I don’t know with whom.

The music is turned up loud,
I’m cranking out poetry that makes me proud,
I know this isn’t the best way to do things,
but I’m trying to spread my wings.

And now you all know where you can find me,
In my office writing poetry,
Yes, it’s true, I threw away the key,
I did that for you, but I also did it for me.
