Poetry Today

was I wrong in saying

Poetry is composed less lesser ....and commented upon least ....
except for some great guys outright condemnation ....
so compose
repose a faith in yourself,
read and read and then confess
tis worth a garbage bin's worth
then smear it all
on mother earth

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


Do not cry, as no one hears thy fretting.
Young Bard we write because we hold a pen in our hearts.
That others decry our write means nothing.
Mine as yours is held up for all to see. then we take it down.
If no one comments or reads that is fine by me.
It is not a waste as it is there for all to see
I always copy out and do what you told me
I send it off to sites anew where it is read and monies are paid.
Tis grand that others who seek out words can find us.somewhere.
Many years ago when I started to write and shout at the world
it had no ears or eyes, but now my friend our words
They rattle around the ether who then cares.
Yours Ian.T, Yenti, Sparrow, and all my friends..

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

simply read my comments
just posted on friend Stan's
it covers your stand
this bard is now no crying man
only compose a poetry
and I post it
before I have another coffee sip
I see they post and pennies like thin sand roll in
and Jess says
you are boasting
blasted no poet ...
Ian's bard

This sounds like one of my days fighting with belief. Saw this was a rough draft - looking forward to the next version...although maybe this was a throw away poem - what I call a rant? :)


so do so grant

Read, read, read.
I suspect you don't much, but we can all benefit from it.

A new workshop on the most important element of poetry-
'Rhythm and Meter in Poetry'
