My mind is still sharp and clear
and I understand the world about me.
but my art is no longer true
to the visions I seek
and when I speak
I disappear into mediocrity

I think It's time
to leave it all behind
and let my silence tell
what my words fail to do.
It's time to let go ...

Editing stage: 


Io veggio tutto chiaro chiaro
e sono di mente ancora sano.
Ma le parole non mi vengono piu'
e le visioni che voglio disegnare
tramite lárte mio sembrano
cadere in mediocrità.

E tempo , dico mo', di lasciare tutto indietro
Che il silenzio parli I miei sogni.....

I can't blame you for tiring in your fight. Yet I also encourage you to "rage, rage against the dying of the light!"..........stan

your words always speak loud and they speak of many and to many.
Never quit penning.
Take care Joe.


Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words
........Robert Frost☺

Follow me

Your writes really work on one's emotions
can't see you stopping yet
and, surely not time to let go

'Each for the joy of the working, and each, in his separate star,
shall draw the Thing as he sees It, for the God of Things as They are.'
(Rudyard Kipling)

We all tire of the fight
inspired, we write ...

you are heard Joe.

I will be back tomorrow

No, my friend, not tomorrow. I have unpublished most of my poems. I did leave a number of poems that I thought ok.I need to re work some. I won't post for the sake of posting, I will post again only if it is something I think is worthwhile.
I don't want to crowd the site with my shit. I've done better.

I agree with Ian in his comment to you in your post DON'T UNPUBLISH.

I the meantime I thank ALL OF YOU who have encouraged me.

your friend,
