A Message from a Poet...

'Listen to your heart, let it loose and write...'
And so I try...And suddenly emptiness results;
My heart...So big and warm, but weak and hurt:
Oh heart of mine, tell your secrets to the world!

Don't be afraid, no pain would stronger be
Than what you've survived...
But there it goes my heart on hide...
Here inside, known to be found,
But so weak to come out.

A Poet I'm not, Because of my heart...
But as a Poem seeker I keep the hunt alive,
One day, maybe someday, I might read a secret,
Or find an answer that will change my life, and save me.

Time is past...Past is Gone...
Tomorrow is soon to arrive,
And here still I'm alive...

So, Poets and poetry I read,
And leave my HOPE as an honest inspiration,
To find the dream in my heart
That long has being misplaced.

    We all try to express ourselves but what does come out is not what we always expect. Keep doing what you're doing very well :) (Report) Reply

    They say practice makes perfect, but there is no such thing as the perfect poem. I can only repeat what you've no doubt heard already: write with your heart so that you can touch and move the hearts of others, and use your mind to shape what you write. You will get continually better, but you're already moving in the right direction. There is more poetry in this than you believe. And once you start to relax more and just let your mind flow a little you will get even better. I've only read one, but I will come back and read more, because there is openness, sincerity and energy in your writing. You have loads of potential Karina. Keep on doing it. xx jim (Report) Reply

    Hi Karina;
    Thank you for comments on my poetry, I never felt that I would ever be a poet.
    I just write poetry, and it has been so full filling that I accomplished something in my life to shall carry on forever.I write something every day, I have folders that I have not posted, as I feel that its not about numbers but quality, a message or a thought, I love doing Haiku's have a hundred or more that I have not posted,
    I am reading your posting and enjoying them, I like your style as the messages are clear. I wrote this poem about a poet 3 years ago I share with you.

    I aThe Poet
    m not a poet, I write poetry
    with my pen in hand the words I understand.
    The issues of the past, the issues on hand,
    I write because of the urgency to document
    my thoughts, least I forget and wander off;
    Sometimes I hear the echoes of the canyons,
    a resonating vibration, seems never to last
    for the sounds I hear, love love love, its time to
    react sounds everywhere,
    I feel I am going somewhere, I feel no where to go,
    going somewhere which way to go?
    for the reflections are illutions, of the echos bouncing
    back, bringing me back to my thoughs and where I am never forget my famiily and my friends.
    with my pen in hand, I write word that I understand. (Report) Reply

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
