Poets Be Brave - Poem by Tom O'Connor

A poet can say
Things in a way
That seem, they may

Of things today
And yes, yesterday.
Using words to play
Their feelings.

All 'true' crave.
Some rant, some rave,
The perfect way -
Eh, what's grammar.

Pen is king, Poet knave
Men and women truly brave.
I will never be afraid,
of rejection.

    Talented souls who are not afraid of rejection will eventually find acceptance somewhere. Write on, brave poet!
