“I noticed you reading my poetry,
From across the room, I said to him,
To this soldier, I hope I have not
And he turned to me and replied,
“I am a Poet Soldier too,”
Can’t offend after 15 years of duty.
I was called names I can’t repeat.
My skin may be like leather,
But my heart is like pure sugar,
And lips, sweet as honey,
Although I battle for peace, I fight for love,
So, today I will write my story too,
“You wanted Paris and I wanted you.”
Your poetry gave me motivation today.
You were my muse unaware,
And inspiration and the reason why
I love to write for you.
Inspiration is not entirely my own,
Borrowed from J.C.
