To Be A Poet - Poem by Pranab K. Chakraborty

nothing is indispensable
to be a poet
not wealth
no sleeping with opposite
travelling not
triggering not
only poet needs
a heart to love and hate
needs food to eat
a shelter to stay
in peace

poet lives originally
where resides countless
stars and planets
galaxies and star-storm
poet resides within the life
whence individual life
begins and finishes its journey
inside a limit of time and space

nothing is indispensable
to a poet in truest sense
but we the human being
who compose
poetry and hankering a reader
to appreciate skill and talent
need many things
as a man needs
perversion and autocracy
flirting and filthing
travelling and tampering
medicine and madhouse
money, security, wine
and partners to share primitive polygamy
to flag high
the animal instinct!

    Lovely poem. Imaginative and realistic. May be desire to express is also an animal instinct. Just a little more refined in humans. Enjoyed the poem. (Report) Reply
