Sometimes It Hurts

Some think that the word poetry
should be tossed upon the shelf,
and wedged between two angry bookends: 
'what' and 'ever'.

    Justin is right in what he says that poetry will always be a corner stone of enlightenment. I have always been in love with art and to paint with words is such a sublime pleasure, to express your heart and soul so thers can feel what you feel see what you see. such exquite words as these fill libraries, " I live, I die, I burn, I drown I endure at once chill and cold Life is at once too soft and too hard I have sore troubles mingled with joys" DELMIRA AUGUSTINI.

    Perhaps,Everlasting,Mikki - it seems like "pop music" has supplanted the craft of poetry in the 21st century;many becoming oblivious or functionally illiterate;sneering at wisdom if it does not flip off the lip of a politician or celebrity - Don't be angry my friend,poetry will always be a cornerstone of enlightenment- I would like to see Poetry reintroduced into the Olympics as it once was -thanks for everything -J.A.B
