Wow a Double Ramble...3

WARNING…THIS JOURNAL CONTAINS ABSOLUTELY NO USEFUL INFORMATION AND MAY RAMBLE ON WITH NO POINT.

Okay…I need to express my view on poetry. There is no such thing as a bad poem, if the writer felt what they wrote at the time. (I have written bad poems, but I decided they were bad because I did not feel what I wrote.) The reader may not appreciate it, but the poem is good.

We get caught up in this medium, where all who read need to make a comment and appreciate the work we do, but truth is the writing is the reward and the comments are only icing, that we can survive without.
(but icing is sweet and sugary…mmmm)

I have had this conversation with a few people now. people who read other poems and think WOW that is so much better than mine. I will guaratee the every poet has a poem that they feel is better than anything they have written. In fact I believe poets are most critical of themselves because of the emotion or experience they are putting out there for all to see.

Bad Poems no-way.

Bad interpretations, possibly.

But that is life and we poets feel that deeply.

Thanks for reading.

Peace n Love!!
