I'm a Poet, and I Didn't Even Know It!

In my literature class, we are now studying poetry.  For the last paper I turned in, the instructor asked us to include a poem about ourselves.  I had something I had written a couple of weeks ago, out of frustration more than anything.  It wasn't too embarrassing, so I tweaked it and sent that in.

Surprisingly, she thought it was good and encouraged me to submit it to a poetry contest! Who would have guessed?  The thought of writing poetry makes me feel close to my favorite great-aunt who wrote a whole book of poetry.  She was a great woman that I miss very much!  I wish this was something we could have shared.
