Poetic Persona

POETIC PERSONA

 

Ever since poetry introduced itself to me

For the very first time

I have been a goner

And since then I have

Developed and evolved

My poetic persona

For I soon realized

As I

Conceptualized

Formulize and materialize

Whether I stood up

Or where I lie

Tactical and strategize

Never penalized

As poetry and I

Continue to remain

Subtle and refusal to vary with change

As I refrain from leaving

For I have my reasons

To stay present and consistently the same

Until nothing is left

I can no longer find the will or inspiration

From any place else

But I digress

I aim to always be at my best

And nevertheless

Passing the most vital test

As I

Possess and obsess

And having much success

Over this thing called poetry

And have no intention of leaving

As I

Await the energy and power it has

Just standing by receiving

And writing to the very end

So inviting and dangerous with the pen

The aspect of me

That is perceived

And graciously and hopefully received

So eloquently

Each time I access poetry

As I feel very appreciative and gracious

Of this ongoing poetic situation

As I going against the grain

For a certain part of me and poetry

Will always remain unchanged

And just as sure as I

Have the very blood

Coursing through my veins

For this may seem strange

To the uninitiated

For poetry to me

Can never truly be

Overstated though at times understated

Too much love to be hated

Highly sought after and thought of

And for me will never be faded

As it always just burst through

And gives the boldness and bravery

To not only see it through

But to also share it with all of you

So every since poetry introduced itself to me

For the very first time

I have been a goner

And since then I have

Developed and evolved

Into what you see today

That is my poetic persona
