The struggling poet

I am a poet,
futile it may seem
in the realm
 I'm in
My word lost
its essence
the filtered ears
of the crowd,
It's subtle
as the mellow
gust of wind,
My words are frail,
for it can't pierce
the thickness
of your soul's wall
Wall thickened
by convention
your allowing,
But here i am,
striving to write
the song
 I'll be singing,
hoping to find in writing
what's my true meaning,
Though my song
is not sung
and its worth
is unseen
I'll continue
to write
till breath to me
will part
Hoping someday
that my words
will crush
the walls of your soul
burn the lace
of your limit
to free at last
your unsettled spirit!

    Words do have the power to impact "the walls of the soul," Juan. And they certainly allow the writer's "unsettled spirit" to achieve some freedom. Enjoyed your poem! Love, Carolyn

    This one is especially good..I like the lines "it cannot pierce the thickness of the walls of your soul"...and also the last six lines...Do you think that the soul becomes harden from what we think or from not letting ourselves feel or acknowledging our emotions?..Keep the creative pen flowing..Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my work..Sara
