Untitled (When I Write)

I write when I’m bored
I fight with no sword
My poems are amazing
Without me blazing
My face clear
My thoughts are great
I believe in myself
I have faith
So I’ma stay I’ma be home 1 day
All I have to do is pray
I read books to escape where I’m at
I need help on how to chat

    Dear Poet,

    Your poem “Untitled (When I Write)” was very enjoyable to read. What I thought was pretty neat was how simple, yet clever you rhymed some of the words together. For example, bored and sword; amazing and blazing; and chat and at. I felt the vibe of your poem, I like it. This poem was very short, sweet, and right to the point. Keep writing. You’re doing a great job.
