Ph: Poetry Writing: When You Write A Poem - Poem by Brian Johnston
When you write a poem, though words are white hot,
Though its message is crusted with ice,
There will always be reader who's blest by the light,
And the one who will thaw its advice.
A bard is entrusted with words of the heart,
Not just digging up gems that will glisten,
For the lessons we learn in the trenches of life,
Love to whisper to those who will listen.
Though words from the heart might be last-gasp event,
Once they're spoken, there's bound to be calm,
That can heal others wounds, and console inner depths,
Even clean up debris of a bomb.
Keep writing dear poet, ignore consequence,
Even if it's your tombstone you fashion,
Steer the ship, honor muse, always try to pay rent,
Let your words plumb the depth of your passion!
