The Golden Pen

I have been writing poetry since I was six. It has always been a passion of mine. To me, a poet is like a photograph in words to describe emotions felt a while ago. The poet is like a photographer. The photographer works with cameras, lenses and snaps a shot of life which later, when developed becomes a photograph of the photographer's subject. Like the photographer, the poet uses figurative language, metaphores, and decorative words to 'snap' a picture of his subject that will become a poem for the world to see and share his views on a particular subject. The poem will become a permanent photograph of the feelings and personal observations of the poet.
