Poetry and You

Poetry Is a God Gifted Art
I commenced composing poems,
As early as eight years
When my first poem

The Truant,

Composed in a class,
Was taken away by my Principal

It was about an incident,
When schools kids went an amok

I don't remember what I wrote
But ever since I have composed
Poetry of my own
As you must have noticed
No two poems of mine are alike,
They neither rhyme nor chime
But so many friends,
I can now claim as mine.

This too is hardly a piece
Yet I know you may like it.

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


I'm so sorry the principal took away your first poem! I was sitting in English class when I was fourteen and writing a piece of prose. My english teacher caught me and she read it outloud to the class! From that point on she accepted my prose and poems as extra credit and my grades improved greatly. I was lucky! (for once in my life)
Keep on composing...

always, Cat

When you fling poo, some of the stink sticks to you!

"The Book of Styx" can be ordered and purchased on line at:

God Almighty doles out different things
to each one
Perhaps her intention must have been good
to save the schools reputation .
now she is in heaven
when i meet her there
i'll ask her why
Thanks cat u r so very kind.
