  • is thinking, once the tip is gone... it's pointless.

Poetry and Prose

works grows from a seed

by some matter of need

to produce not impede

inner thoughts we can read

but then after we read

come harsh judgments indeed

so we tear up the page

to release inner rage

as we try even more

different lines we deplore

and we scrap the whole mess

thinking we should write less

still the urge comes again

to lay words down with pen

with new hope to engage

while we stare off and age

till at last we evoke

and our feelings are spoke

in a piece that’s unveiled

to be then booed or be hailed

*Round of applause* Oh the woes of being a poet. But on the other hand, oh the joys. I've alway thought the end result is worth it. Emily Dickinson wrote, "If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain; If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain, Or help one fainting robin Unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain."

A rhyming delight covering the creative an frustrating sides of composing poetry. Well done.

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
