a poet writes whatís in his heart

the words like raindrops fall

on blank sheets of white they appear

in answer to the poetís call


sometimes words drip heartache

laughter often giggles aloud

anger sometimes froths the page

or hero worship tall and proud


bare our souls to the readerís eyes

our hearts to the world to see

brave the critics slashing tongues

if with us they disagree


i have written poems to cheer the lonely

poems to ease a broken hearts pain

poems to say the angels are waiting

to take a loved one home again


poems to give encouragement

words of congratulations to you

poetry to make you laugh

and ones to make you think itís true


one thing i know for certain

i only write what i believe

the cost is sometimes heavy

a cost a poets left to grieve.

A writer, a poet, must take risks or they don't grow and their writing doesn't evolve and challenge the hearts and minds of readers. I enjoy reading your work, dear Felix!

A POET GRIEVES has beautiful grace and cadence and speaks a message all poets will understand.

Felix, you really nailed this with the fantastic piece. Truth abounds within these lines. Thanks for sharing this with all.

Excellent poem, Felix. I believe honesty is the most important thing we can give to others, as well as the greatest gift we give ourselves. As long as we are honest, whether or not others like our truth doesn't matter.
Reviewed by Sandie Angel 7/13/2005
I agree with Sherry. I, too, write from my heart. Whether or not it is agreed upon it does not bother me, as I am always true to my own feelings and expression.

I think we, the poets, do tend to speak from our mind and heart, and when that happens our expressions are genuine, we are also highly empathetic, so we are capable of feeling other people's pain and misery, thus in many instances we write to comfort the others.

A wonderful write, Felix!

I appologise for nothing that I write, for I write from my heart. If some disagree, that is good for it means that mankind has not shrunken to the mentality of cows, all following after the jingling of the lead bell. We are each unique and that makes for a difference of opinion sometimes. With age and time we learn flexibility and realize that different isn't the same as wrong. Wonderful write, Felix!!
Take care,
