The driven poet!!



He pours his heart out on paper expressing what he feels
Like writing over steep cliff he drops it and it spills
Floating in the air he finds a topic to write
The driven poet explains his words in flight

Traveling next to an airplane they glance at his words
Escorting the flow of a masterpiece protected by the birds
He's driven to write there's no mistake let his style be known
Believing in his heart all the time that his poetry will live on

Like behind the wheel of a car he presses the accelerator down
Detours, direction flows in his mind as these words roll around
He takes an exit unfamiliar, he shortcuts through the planes
Powered by his thoughts he writes a piece that surely inspires again

Carl Semien Claim this poet

Hi.....my name is Carl Anthony Semien, I was born on Oct 25th 1957 in Lake Charles, La. I found my passion for writing poetry when I entered my first poetry contest with Poetry.com in 1997 with the poem "A Place" which gave me my first poetry Editor's Choice Award. Since then I've published two poetry books and received 5 more Awards. Writing is a vent for me and I'm a better person because of it! Now I reside in Hollywood, Ca. Where I continue writing to inspire, encourage, and challenge my readers and other fellow poets out there! Hope my poems brings optimism, change, to make this world a better place. And most importantly, when my life is over, let it be said....."I Contributed more than I Criticized!" more…
