I Know


just so we're clear on this

of course i know that none

of it is by any means poetry

never been presented as such


i'm not a poet nor a writer

have never had the ambition

like it a lot, but it's as far as it

goes, talent cannot be forced


you have it or you don't

still, i like to put words

together, talented or not

i think it doesn't matter


my goal isn't to impress

or to emulate the greats

it's just something i do

to let my thoughts out


some of the personal

or the general

or the imagined

or the random ones


i also do 'cause of my

own circumstances

it's nice to have eyes

around in some form


so yes, i know

it's not poetry

but is it less

important for it?

Ernest Hemingway my old author I started to read around 11 knew perfectly well when he had written a good sentence. I don't know if it is relevant cause I experienced the same thing with no real success but though success is not always about being published or televised when the price is high. I went then into a process of justifying myself, pitying myself sometimes.
Then about poetry. Poetry is a meeting of old people that decide when there is poetry. Let the flow comes out your verve...before trying to put it into a cell, that would be my recommendation to myself and you helped me to define it!
thank you

How presumptuous of you to declare that certain works (yours) aren't poetry. There are no rules which specify that some works are poems, while others are not.

Hello FM what can I see, The scribbles you write.
In my mind sounds like poetry to me.
I agree with Griff, you could certainly turn
This poetry into a rift. Hugs an xxx my friend
Regards Alan

Oh but you have a real rare talent with expressing your self in with words.

I was thinking along the same lines as Allen, you're musical by nature and that comes out in your poetry, and it is poetry. There is always a strong sense of rhythm and precision in your work.

Your words are rather apt when you're listening to the question 'will there be someone to sing your blues?' I think you do yourself a discredit: Your blues are well presented. Pure poetry. :)
