Apologia Pro Poemate Meo


My poetry is not one which is meant to talk wrong about others
My words are not which are meant to put others in a dark light
I write about the good and the bad - The truth
There is no point in keeping poetry to oneself
If one does so - It is no longer considered poetry
I am not to be held accountable if my work is misjudged
My intentions were clear from the start
I talk about whats on my heart and nothing else
I am not one to invent fairytales - Talk wrong about others
What has been done has been done and is only there to be written about
I do not call for pitty cries - I do not call for help
What I do is mearly a way of getting off what's on my chest
A heavy baggage which is to hard to take off easily
Or better yet, carry around for too long
So do not judge my work lightly, wrongly
I am not to be held accountable to misjudgements by others
However I do beseech your forgiveness for any inconvenience caused

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
