I am not a Poet

I am not a poet,
Nor a philosopher,
a common mass I am,
just like you.
I know the pains,
when people stare at me,
and I remain speechless,
when they start asking.
I am not a poet,
unless the world praises me,
until they respect my dignity,
accept me the way I am.
Not a poet I am,
because poets are creators,
creators of feelings,
creators of emotions.
I lost my feelings,
I lost my emotions long ago,
I cannot feel love,
nor can I feel hatred.
Know not I how to smile,
know not how to laugh,
not a poet I am,
don't raise be above.
