Simplicity

I compose poems not only for the versed and fluent.
There are many less intelligent readers who like poetry.
.

Why should I write complicated and confusing terms?
Simplicity is the best thing for a wider audience.
.

I’m not concealing anything in my compositions.
My poetry isn’t mysterious writing or crossword puzzle.
.

Every author has his or her own style of penning.
Some tell fictional stories and non-fiction, others rhyme.
.

My poetry doesn’t resemble 1st century writings.
I’m a poet of the 21st century with a vivid imagination.
.

I write plainly and intelligibly, not mumbo jumbo,
So the average persons can apprehend the lines.
.

Frankly, I’m not Shakespeare, I live in modern times.
I don’t speak and write the way ancient people did.
.

Whether you agree with me or not, it’s up to you.
I really don’t mind what people say about my poems.
.

You won’t need an expert in cryptic manuscripts;
Anybody can decipher the poems that I compose.
