Am I a Writer/Poet?

Am I a Writer/Poet?

I like to think of myself as a writer/poet
Yet the sporadic way I write does not show it

Life, work and hobbies all interfere with writing
My creative side is always fighting

To release
Its creative piece

Ideas clunk around in my mind
Until I find

A way to express the random thoughts I have
Then expression becomes a salve

That sometimes cools the creative beast
But other times not in the least

I really would like to succeed
For I have a need

To be creative

Am I a writer/poet?
Yes, and I’m not going to stop it

Until the sun don’t shine
On me and mine!
