To All Beginning Poets

     You may get to read at the
             inauguration
      But the chance 
            of that is 
       miniscule
           Perhaps you 
    dream of great loves 
     Perhaps you 
       dream 
         of utopia 
Take advice from those 
    who are 
reading you 
   You will learn that 
          your words 
can build edifices
   of hope 
inside the minds 
   of untold thousands

    The beginnings of a great poem starts in the heart, not the mind. You must seek the words inside you and let them flow out of you, uncensored and on-the-spot. That's how it works me anyhow. Another good one!

    i like the encouragement in your poem, although i think that "thousands" is a bit of wishful thinking...
