About Writing Poems

Rating: 5.0


My art will always be
A work in progress
There are many parts to be seasoned
There are many parts to be refined

I write for ordinary people
Those who eat normal food
Wear simple, comfortable dresses
Return home in the evening
To have dinner with their families

People who love, quarrel, shout
And then make-up
Live ordinary lives
And die unknown
Without leaving footprints on the sands of time

I write for people like me

In ordinary to see the extra-ordinary, your poems try to reach those that leave no footprints on the sands of time. And they do.
