Poetry Is Important

VII-IV-2016

Poetry is important
But some who write seem to forget
Poetry is not in the form
The form is only a vessel
Poetry is not
In the quotes your keep sharing
Written by poets you can never be
Poetry is not in your bookshelf

It is neither a privilege nor an achievement
Those who call themselves poets
Are yet to know poetry
Pen, paper, the keyboard
Are just surfaces
Words and images are only tools
Feelings are only excuses
Experiences are only triggers

The mindful have already begun poetry
Those who have let go have finished

Rest is a gimmick
