The Arrogance Of A Writer

Rating: 5.0
When problems arise
Like dark clouds into my skies,
A strange kind of thrill goes over me.
Why?
Because I am a writer.
I thrive on adversity.
Rolling and tumbling fill me with words
Which come out as pearls on paper...

When my efforts go down the drain,
And everything I do goes in vain,

Though the last verses seem to spread out an arrogance, they do not.It's not a personal matter of a single writer boasts over his own achievements.The writer here, the poet, puts down these verses to defend all writers in the world.She speaks on their sake.Writers have to thank her.

A writer simply has to write- -words are writers' breath of air. We write the words and sends them out to dance on the stage and can only hope they resonate with the audience. Good review or bad, we go back to our drawing boards and try again because Shakespeare and Poe and Whitman are in our hearts and urge us to pour our soul into our works. A very good poem here, Jasbir

Yes, writers know their value.They write because they enjoy writing.Their words are their power, their strength and their best rewards that have lasting value.Like Rajnis Manga said, this quality is not arrogance, but self confidence of a writer.A writer does not wait for outside approval.He draws his strength from his own self.
