Writing: Poets

By

Poets are people who feel too strongly,
see with such deep perception
all the virtue and evil
this world has to offer.

Sometimes overcome by the beautiful and rare
passions of this life.
Sometimes tormented and even killed
by the agony of loss.

I use to wonder
condescendingly
about poets.

No more…

For I am a poet..
embracing all the blessings and curses
that accompany this noble, if not happy office.

But do not wonder condescendingly about me,
for I would have it no other way.

Write on ye noble poets…
