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.
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.
