Poem Picked Apart

Rating: 5.0

I am a poem that I wrote
Myself in olden place and time.
A lot of love stuff I did quote
And forced each line to end in rhyme.
I called myself Anonymous,
And for a while that was okay.
But then critics began to fuss
As I was read in modern day.
I did become a subject of
Scorn and ridicule daring to
Be of a rhyming way for love.
Complaints of me as poem grew.

So I rewrote myself free verse.
But now the criticism's worse.

It's best to rhyme... most of the time!

If you are an artist then both praise and criticism come with the art. Free verse is a nice style that allows for much creativity.

So you try to be nice and compromise and you still lose in a quick and empty spin.

It's hard to be a poet, emotionally and otherwise

It is sad that some feel the need to critize a piece of art. Ìma, you've penned nearly three thousand poems; you must be doing something right.

When poem is published, it goes to the hands of critiques. They may shower you with praise or criticism and a poet should be ready to face both. Your poems are beautiful and seems to come naturally.
