Originality? - Poem by Sam Jones

Repetition or revelation
Inspiration or imitation
Originality, individuality
Purpose, duality

Re-iteration of justification
Empty head, brain dead
Idiosyncratic representation
Copied, borrowed, re-worded
Or real

    the poet always tries
    to make deepest emotion
    sound real and new
    that's what happens
    no harm
    but honesty is the best medicine
    for stale words
    a fine poem
