Poetry, Writing

A poet’s duty

A poet's duty-01


When I write poetry, I always try to create something beautiful or reveal a truth. It’s far too easy to find poetry proclaiming sorrows when the world already has plenty of sadness. While melancholy words have their time and place, I’d rather write something that speaks to the spirit within us all that craves beauty, rhythm, magic. Writing poems that speak to that spirit is my duty, I feel. The day will come that I need to write a sad poem, but for now I’m content writing about heart’s whispers and magic.
