I’m No Poet, Poetry by Kuhle Sikota

 Genre: Rhyme

 I’m no poet
I’m a writer
I write. I’m not perfect or imperfect,
though a persistent practical practitioner
who indulges in one of the most
prolific practices in post-apartheid.

I discovered, designed and distilled lines I Defined.

I perform, promote, possess
and personify poetry.
Painting pictures with still poses
and pasting alphabets on pages.

A dude who is done with rages,
and separated from dimwitted phases.

Let me get back to topic, and start moving…
moving… disturbing my still pose
and follow the rhythm of rhyme.
Let me riddle and write, yes,
ride on my rhythm or rhymes

I write, I wrote, I’ve written without fear of rejection
resolute that you will respect my resolve.

Yes that was poetry, but I’m still no poet..
