Don't Call Me Poet.


He wrote a poem titled it the last poet
he was in the poem era, the last before all went quiet…
And the only sound I could hear was rhyme and flow
so, maybe I sound like this in slow motion,
maybe I found my place in flow motion.
But I don’t think you should call me poet, without caution.

A little about me though no autobiography; I flunked literature class, 
needless to add I don’t have my poetic license.
So I read twice as much as I write, when I write,
My scripts are ten times better than when I spit.
Guess my ten fingers can take credit for this.

Don’t call me poet, I don’t think I've graduated.
So what if my thoughts sound like they've marinated
I’m not there yet but I’m steadily moving toward it,
all I need is this ink for what I feel, to word it
I don’t seek for you to understand this, what I want is
for you to feel me as though you’re blind and I’m Braille.

Don’t call me poet, I know nothing about rhythm,
my pace is uneven, maybe I lack lyrical fitness.
The only beat I know and write to, that of my heart.
And that’s another 72 reasons every minute
why me and pen will never part.

Written by Edgar Akama.

  1. This has a purpose while diving, but most people use it to measure short things like parking meters and cooking times while being an at-home chef. The bottom line is that even though the Rolex Submariner replica watches sale is a diver's watch, a very small percentage of the people who own it dive. Why buy a dive watch then? Well it is really about an appreciation for rolex replica uk what a dive watch can do and what it represents. Activity, durability and exploration. While we aren't engaged in these things all the time, we like to keep capable items near us. The rotating bezel on the fake watches Submariner used to have an aluminum insert with the minute indicators printed on it, but a few years ago Rolex replica watches sale moved over to making ceramic bezels. This was a distinct upgrade and rolex replica sale calls their ceramic "Cerachrom." Sounds fancy right? The production process of the bezel include engraved numerals and lume.
