It was in the middle of the night when the hands of the clock strike its way to 12 and there I thought of being a "poet." How did I know that I have an inner poet within me?
There are three things that I have considered before I was able to conclude that I am a so called "poet":
My mind made its way deeper than I could eve imagine, more than I could think of, it thinks way better than a usual youth could ponder. Words and lyrics came out naturally and found myself writing each words in a different phase about the world and the other world.
When I am Happy and in deep sorrow, I write. better. In a regular day to day basis I could write anything under the sun thus, I was able to write even better when emotions step in and my mind works at its best.
Creativity along with its story is the main indication. I was able to tell real-life stories while hiding it in the common things however, not to deep but rather; simply telling a story where reader could imagine the scenes.
Being a poet is never easy and will never be easy. It is not an overnight miracle before you could be one.
