My Poem Does Not Inspire


My poem does not inspire-
Small truths about a small person
Are not inspiring-
My poem does not delight-
Small complaints from a small person
Are not delightful-

My poem does not bring more Love and Joy to the world-
Small songs of sadness are not the greatest Happiness-
My poem does not make the soul move higher-
Small ironies about a selfish self slightly bring us down-

My poem is not the best,
And I am not either.
