Why Write a Poem

Why write a poem?
Because there is a desire to do so.
Although I fear I know not what I’m doing
and am completely ignorant of the rules,
the desire is there – to simply give it a try.
I do not even know if what comes out
qualifies as poetry.
But does it matter?
Is it not enough
that a child is born into this world
to make its parents smile?
