Here are a couple of Lee Stewart’s poems, which were all originally hand written before they are transferred onto the computer. I am a Book, the title says it all about many of the type of books that people love to read. The poem, I am a Poet, is an insight into the man, Lee Stewart behind the poems, and a taste of how his mind ticks, grows and progresses in relation to his life and poetry.



Lee Stewart's opinion on being a Poet

''Being a Poet I believe is more than just writing poetry, to me it is sort of a way of life, and how you are towards the world and its people.''



I am a book


I am a book you all love to read,

I am a book that’s never complete,

I am a book that’s always open,

I am a book whose words are spoken.


I am a book with stories to tell,

I am a book you all know well,

I am a book that’s never closed,

I am a book you read the most.


I am a book with many pages,

I am a book with many stages,

I am a book where you all live as one,

I am a book that’s barely begun.


I am a book that will bring you joy,

I am a book and not a toy,

I am a book filled with respect,

I am a book you won’t forget.


I am a book you are my chapters,

I am a book of happy ever afters,

I am a book that writes itself,

I am a book that’s not on the shelf.


I am a book with ups and downs,

I am a book with smiles and frowns,

I am a book of good and evil,

I am a book that’s for the people.



Being a Poet

 

He’s a man of distance depth and time,

Tired of life’s lessons but they say he will be fine,

An empty man, I've ran out of steam,

Destroyed is the plan, and gone is my dream.

 

A tainted soul and don’t I know it,

But I’m not letting go of being a poet.

 

The world keeps turning, and business thriving,

So many machines around they’re all driving,

Caring too much about oil, and not of surviving.

 

And I’m being told to go with the flow,

To a future where, they don’t even, know,

To become an emotionless part of the show.

I’d rather play Russian roulette with death,

See how many times he shoots himself in the head,

Us both laughing cause there is nothing left,

Knowing fine well, we are both already dead.

 

So I have another drink, but not to be numb,

To sit and think about what I’ve done,

To open my eyes to what is real?

And it helps me work out exactly how I feel.
