what is a poet?

What is a poet? A person who suffers from poverty And in his emptiness He sees A gem in the dirt And shines the gem for all

But don't forget that the gem came Because you are poor And if you are rich No more gems appear

So a poor person ceases to be poor If he is happy in his poverty

Let the rich enjoy their riches And let this poor poet Enjoy a generous God Who comforts the poor
