The Greatest Poetry Comes From The Heart - Poem by Sumpter Carter

The greatest poetry comes from the heart
Flowing through the pen
It comes for me as natural as breath
Writing my heartsong on a page.

Writing is said to be limitless
For poetry it truly is so
One of the most high esteemed skills
Able to fight dark down below.

In the hands of a master
It can tear down a king
Yet with the Amatuer
It brings joy of living.

My heart pounds
As the flows on the page
A true love I have
For this simplest of forms.

Following my heart
It gives me new high
For free verse poetry
I'd brushed quiet aside.
