Modern Day Poet

Poems and poets of differing kinds
Weird as they may be
With intellectual minds
Twisting, bending and breaking a thought
All to describe moments seen and sought

Though not your modern average joes
They walk the streets as friends and foes
With joys and heart break like everyone else
And time acted truthful and others in sin
They sit down and pour feelings with paper and pen
Twisting, bending and breaking a thought
All to describe moments seen and sought

Not a moment goes by where we dont think
And write it down with tears of ink
Expressing emotion everyday
Grasping them tightly so they dont fade away
Twisting, bending and breaking thought
All to describe moments seen and sought

If your reading these words i speak
These moments you have sought and seek
Growing and searching for that perfect moment
All in the words of a modern day poet.

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
