Call Me Not A Poet

Call me not a poet
for i’m starved of words
that can make a line
traverse into a verse
call me not a poet
for I lack the wit
to turn my mood into a muse
i have not the pace
to run the race
call me not a poet
its a name that makes me shiver
the onus is too broad for my shoulder
they know not how to be sober
in their world im just a toddler
call me not a poet
im in awe of this lots
take a sip from their gourds
the image they paint with words
will add colours to your world
