I don’t like labels that confine what we can be
I don’t like inherent barriers in becoming that label
I am a wordsmith because I love playing with words
I am not a poet, a writer, a journalist nor a novelist
Although at times I have been each and every one
Words are so interesting to play with:
Are you a wise guy or a wiseguy?
Is that your hair or your hare?
Where are you from and what do you wear?
Such endless entertainment to explore
I can lose my love of writing in criticism
My own need for perfection and that of others
I just have to remember: I am a wordsmith
