An Honest Poet Poem by Tracey TEE

An Honest Poet

Rating: 5.0

Poetry makes the heart grow fonder
A fellow poet... like an open book
Every line he writes is a day in his life
exposing his inner soul to the world
his humble words touch our hearts
in return for such honesty we pen
our own thoughts to create a
diary of our lives within a verse
A true Poet is at his greatest
when he is truthfull with himself,

I really love the way you have written this Tracy. 'An open book, exposing our inner soul'. This would sit so well in the preface of a poetry book. When I have dared to expose my soul wondering if poets will be shocked, I have found they too have had similar experiences. This makes for wonderful fellowship and sharing with each other. 10 Karin Anderson

Exactly. Honesty in a writer's words will always add an element of sincerity.

When I write.... this is exactly how I write. I believe all poetry must come from the heart if its to touch the reader. HG: -) xx
