One Great Poem

How could I write a great poem
Where I have nothing to write about

I could write about
Love and Lust
Life and Death

The greatest poem
Where everything must combine and fit it
Similes and metaphors must go together
And the lyrics must go with the beat

Where shall I begin
I shall write one great poem today
It shall be everything about anything
And anything about everything

    you are a born poet, i may say...
    this piece shows, your words are telling us
    that you're a poet and tomorrow, will be a great one too...

    to write a great poem
    pick up a great pen
    start writing great things
    and never let the nearby screams of passers by stop you,
    the enticing voice of loafers lure you to cancel half a line of your great write
    nor thier river of tears wash off a word of it

    Nice poem about the creativ process. How to fill an empty page. Where to get the inspiration. I use to take my dog for a walk, it clears my mind and words begin to flow. (Report) Reply
