Never put off till tomorrow what you can do the day after
- Mark Twain

Just a man,
Who knew how to communicate
And stir the hearts of many
Just a man,
Who knew how to laugh
and make the world laugh with him
Just a man,
Who knew how to wield words
And fill us up with sorrow
Just a man,
Who became
A cherished figure,
A famous personage,
A beloved author,
And every writer's hero.
Just a man,
Called William Shakespeare

The author's comments:
A school assignment. I was supposed to write a poem on how amazing Will Shakespeare was. All the examples were dripping with soppy, cliche rhymes, so I decided to tone it down a little. Enjoy :)

I loved it~ You've described the accomplishments of a self made man, one whose work is well known around the world. Sometimes we forget that William Shakespeare was just a man. This was a delight to read:)
