Ars Poetica Poem by LeeAnn Azzopardi

Ars Poetica

Rating: 4.9


My poetry is a mystery to me also
I don't know how I write
I feel it isn't any good
That I could make a living
When it gets published, I can shout
On atop of a mountain
And I feel confident and full of joy
But with one rejection that comes
I am falling from that mountain
Sometimes, I think I should give up
Because I am too old to continue
But my Dad's voice comes to me
Saying 'Poetry is yr trade, Lee-Ann '
I wipe my tears and pull up my bootstraps
And continue to write
As nothing can hold my words then
