The first written poem by Mankind dates back several thousands years... even the Bible writers used it to inspire as King David did in his spiritual Psalms. Then, the intellectual Greek and Roman poets performed it daily in the amphitheaters of their great cities as the most popular art form so meditated for anologies... and it never gets old, it still inspires us with its verse. Read all genres: from ages past to our present time, to discover that human feelings are equally sublime: joy, pain, hope, love, triumph, defeat, envy, betrayel, hate and happiness... among those you have read so far: which ones have made you speechless? Be overjoyed that our poetry will live on after we'll be gone, our names proudly set in stone: it's the greatest honor bestowed upon us; and the ones who admire our work will definitely carry on, hoping that they too will partake in that ureal glory...even surpassing ours.
