A poem on why poet's write

We play to an audience
Who choose not to hear
We write for the masses
But do they adhere?

Words likened to a sword
Rendering us to think
Seem to be the afterword
Allowing humanity to sink

Life, expected to ever please
Lessons held but never learned
So oft we hide from stormy seas
Reality, most often spurned

Existence, meant to be a test
On texts taught so often
Why then do we try to best
What destiny dares not soften?

I had to cheer up a friend on facebook who has lots going for her. She said she was Sad, it is not like her to be that way, a very pretty and popular girl. Oh well, we each have our days of loneliness and troubles. Reading your poetry helps me throght this night.

It seems there is no easier, softer way. No shortcuts. The journey is simply the journey. Some of us more elegant than others providing passing remarks along the path.
