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

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
