Oh unknown poet

You can't survive
in a fire like chestnuts
such as this

nor can you ever survive
in waters with crocodiles

so I suggest
before you rebuff
remain unknown
tis okay for some

but the one you rebuff
is that iron
which can repair the bruise

so don't as being unknown accuse
but make proper use.

I have been brazened
over a period of time
I knew no poetry
neither rhythm nor rhyme

now f you can call this
some sensible crime
worthy a dime
say so I intrude in a domain divine
of which master are you
as you is unknown wine

You haven't read me yet
you are the only star
by far

maiden comment
try to understand
be brave
but with a shield in hand....

A good write there, here's me thinking that Loved said that long poems were hard to read.
I was just reading about Anon It is sad that one that writes so should not want to be known,
You can write how you like young Bard we are walking the same pathway
Yours Ian.T..

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

you have known me all along
without your support
could could I stay so long
here is where
you... Jess and I belong
what is wrong...

I at times do go long
just to get along
am I wrong?

You have misread my comment, this is where you belong, though we would like to know of you more it has been years of us together, Take care young Bard, Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

The first stanza captured me and then to quote one of our great Bengali Poets:

leading into chambers
leading into
and endless silence

Great poem


Leonard Daranjo

"When the waiting stops, the living begins"

whch is great mine or naturally the bengalis
