I Cannot Write a Poem

I cannot write a poem
It's not one of my strengths
I can't express my feelings
I can't go to such lengths

My poems are like plastic plants
They're lifeless and soulless and fake
They're just a sad attempt
At making something great

Real poems are alive
And with each touch they change you
My poems are an empty shell
They're just not real and true

I try to write a masterpiece
It is brilliant in my head
But as my pen reaches the page
There is nothing really said

Some poems are simply beautiful
The poets go to such lengths
But I cannot write a poem
It's not one of my strengths


I've always wanted to turn in a poem like this for school....

So, not my best work, but it rhymes... which is a lot for me. No regular meter, because that is just impossible for me to do.
