BURN AFTER READING



Dearest Poets:

At times, I must admit, not pleased with 
the results of my work.
I just want to shred them feeling like 
a poetic jerk.

What's the point of all these hours
I ask?
Perhaps burn all after reading?

Finding no answers, I let go of
philosophizing and waltz into the
California sun...

To just be one with God's nature
and His Holy Son.

Love, Panagiota

Hello Panagiota … please don't burn any of your work. Save and put aside for another day. I think all writers go through a stage of not feeling good about themselves. I knew fella who once burnt his prized guitar on a down day - thank you Panagiota - Lindsay

Heavens, Lindsay! This was only a poem. I am sure others go through questioning themselves. It is totally human. No way, 805 poems will I toss.sorry about the man and guitar. I could have only 130 poems there and let people read them.but...I love to write. Nice that you do care. My Poetry has a lot of questions about many issues. I know it upsets some but am not here to win a popularity Contest. A few friends are perfect. Panagiota

gosh it started out whimsical and ended rather profoundly with the Holy Son! I just had to read this one after the title struck me so similar to the movie you told me about. I really enjoyed this. (you keep on writing and never put yourself down. You are very good at this!)

I loved the title Burn After Reading, the movie. But the movie has NOThing to do with poetry. I just loved the title.

Yes,,the movie title clicked with how I feel about my poetry. I am not one, staggering from too many poetic wine accolades to think I am greatness with a pen. Far from it. I am my toughest critic.-))
