To All You Poets Out there in the Darkness

To all of you poets 
out there in the darkness

Surely you can write something as funny as Woody Allan - as imaginative as J.R.R. Tolkien

To all you poets out there in the darkness

The internet is a new way of showing off your talent - use it!

To all you poets out there in the darkness 

Sen out your beams of light so you can illuminate your city, your state, your world

In the shadows there are many creative types 

Spinning their webs to catch the imagination of untold millions

Let the light of your words liberate the masses 

You are surely important!

Speak words of peace and freedom!

Become at peace with yourself 

Bring a shaft of light to the world

    Thank you for your kind words. "Out there in the darkness" was taken from the broadcasts of the late Jean Shepherd - writer and monologist - whom I was a fan of. Have you ever read his books? Do you know who he was? Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    Some sound advice, Matthew! Writes and comments can bring joy, to the readers, and poets. When you'd asked in you comment about 'The Fiddlers Cat' being related 'The Fiddler On the Roof'...it prompted me to go and watch the movie on Youtube.:) It's fun and funny, but darn it's also very sad! Maybe my cat had been thinking along the same lines as the Fiddler. Best wishes!! Mikki :)
