Fearless Poet - Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla

Poet gathers and
Arranges words
To express thoughts
And excite all readers.

A poet who's timid
Afraid to write
Deep inner feelings
Does no service.

Words must flow
Freely in verse
Power of the lines
Washing out the dirt.

Fearless poet
You're the hero
Your words inspire
Society to progress.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Inspired by the great Telugu poet Dasharathi Krishnamacharyulu, who was jailed for 18 months for expressing against the Nizam of Hyderabad before India's independence in1947.

    just now i was turning pages of Geeta. at one place it is mentioned 'a poet knows about past present n future'. if a person can know about future then for what he will fear. a master philosophy. (Report) Reply

    love this poem. the words are so true. A poet is a reflection of many life times of experience. Looking deep within to capture and relate feelings and the truth to the mysteries of life, A poet is an ambassador for the ages. To refresh and renew feelings lying deep inside. This is a GOD given talent which we must indulge. lovely ink

    Very good write indeed. A Poet must exhibit all kinds of talents and
    imagination. We must be counted fearless in our aspirations to
    become good Poets. It is just like being an actor, painter, artist,
    singer or countless others. We must put our all into it. (Report) Reply
