We are all poets writing the verses of our lives with each stroke of the pen. Some poets are more imaginative than others. Some prefer haiku, some write in the literal, while others aim for the vague and abstract. Nonetheless, we are cummings, Plath, Shakespeare, Frost, and many others. What we choose to write is up to us to a large extent. We cannot always control the paper, but we usually can control the pen and the language that is crafted. The heart of a poet beats inside all of us.
