Try not to become a person of success, but rather try to become a person of value.Albert Einstein
like a child with a toy in his hand
i'm a poet with a pen in his hand.
i bring my poetic devices to play.
no matter what the masses might say
i tell my similes to crack a smile
and my metaphors to walk a mile
in the shoes of personification.
so as to bring about satisfaction
in people, whilst also seeking perfection.
i let my rhymes form a scheme
that will go up against any team-
the best among the rest, yet still win.
i ask my assonance to develop a conscience
and tell my consonance to use its common sense
when trying to decipher how to form
a bond with the lady that reiterates
attention to alliteration that fades
to silence like the sound before a storm.
