A Poet Bleeds For Mankind

Rating: 5.0

to give up on poetry
is giving up on life

you give poetry your all
taking it away you will fall

denying your art
leaves an empty heart

lift up your pen, it bleeds

for all mankind

How very, very well you have poetically summarized the workings and feelings that smelt into being a poet, one step from paradise. So, let the pen continue to bleed although today it may not be that much appreciated except among poets that still be. Excellent work, thank you!
