how can i be a poet

will this society recognize my poetry as art as such?

this society is suffocation

how can i write poetry

when children are being slaughtered?

how can i write poetry

when old people are eating dog food?

how can i write poetry

when girls are being raped?

how can i write poetry

when innocent people every day, are being sacrificed?

how can i be a poet

when you impose rules upon what poetry is and what it is not?

how can i be a poet

when every day on this earth, i think of this day as the last?
