Poetries of the Mind


Some poets get awards and think they are good poets.

Some poets never get awards and think they are bad poets.

Some poets think they are good poets only in their own mind

Some poets think they are bad poets in somebody else's mind.

Some poets think they are good poets in somebody else's mind.

Some poets think others think they are good poets but they don't in their hearts.

Some poets think they are good poets in their hearts but not in anyone  else's mind.

All are insecure, except those who get security from the opinions of others and that, alas, doesn't last and isn't real.

Some poets have left the entire scene and live only in their mind.

Some poets take criticism and don't mind.

Some poets avoid criticism and do mind.

Some poets write poetry to get love.

Some poets love to write poetry.

Some poets are ahead of their time, in their mind

Some poets spend a lifetime feeling like failures in their mind

Some poets live only after they die.

Some poets have much to say but can't articulate

Some poets retreat, believing others don't understand

So which one of these am I?

I guess I am all of these and none of these

and no matter what my description

I intend to keep doing what I do:

Write. Right

Bravo!!
Very well penned and so true.
Thats poetry form is called anaphora and usually one poet gets across writing a anaphora only once they've gained control over their poetry writing skills.
Do check my poem : Gift Yourself too its an anaphora as well.

absolutely RIGHT!

That about sums it up.

Quite luminous and has many colors that change just like one of those glass statues that glow in the dark as the room becomes illuminated.
