Expressions 2016 ~ NaPoWriMo

by BeasPeas

~ Prologue ~
NaPoWriMo twenty sixteen is here,
calling on poets to compose each year,
rhymes that touch the heart; prompt sadness or cheer.

Join the challenge, pick up your ink and quill,
express yourself or just read--if you will,
one poem a day for all of April.
I'm a Poem!
Sometimes I wonder what others see,
when they cast cold eyes to look at me,
then avert their gaze, stare at the sky,
take the easy way out, walk on by...
Maybe they're afraid to take a chance,
those strangers passing without a glance.
Many don't dare delve into my soul.
If they did, I'd console, make them whole,
entertain, satisfy, satiate.
They'd have a new friend who is first rate.
I'm a poem!
