a poet’s heart~by Shi Ricks


 

 

a poet’s heart

I am “The Fruit of the Earth,”
I came from the dirt.
I make mistakes,
like Johnny Cash said;
I’ll make you hurt.
I am “The Fruit of the Earth,’
I need to grow,
I am “The Fruit of the Earth.”
An learn to sow.
Til I reach my peak,
On the Mountains Steep.
Climb an weep.
I am “The Fruit of The Earth,”
A person a rebel,
Fighting temptation,
Negativity, The Devil.
I am “The Fruit of the Earth,”
A Writer, A Poet,
congregating words,
An sippin’ on ”Moet”.
I am “The Fruit of The Earth,”
That God, made, with the rest,
I am “Awesome”, like him,
I am “Simply the Best.”
