In Praise Of A Courageous Poet – ‘candycole’ - Poem by Jonathan Goldman a.k.a JGthepoet

Many poets I meet on here,
They all write poems from far and near,
Some write reviews and are honour bound,
But some, and only a few are around,
Do not care if they offend,
And when rebuked, do not amend
The words they’ve written to cause offence,
And that is the difference
Between those Cowards and You,
Who has been honest and creative too.

You were not ashamed of the Deed you’d done,
But were willing to admit it to everyone,
By writing a poem to be seen by All,
‘To Open One’s Eyes’ ~~~ made You stand tall.
