I May Not Be Famous

My works may not fill a greeting card,

Or be published in a magazine.

But I wrestle words out of my mind,

And that’s alright by me.

 

I may not be a Poet Laureate

For an institution of any kind.

But I pour gems out of my heart,

And that suits me just fine.

 

I may not be a famous author,

Best seller on some paper’s list.

But I mine jewels out of my soul,

And I don’t mind being missed.

 

I may not teach in a noble school

Or make workshops online.

I just tumble with the mumbles

Until my text starts to shine.
