on writing

Writing a poem You can read hundreds of books by famous writer and learn of their stories how to write. You can read other poets work and learn the craft of poetry, there are so many styles, in the end you can sit down and write a perfect poem and it will be admired for its style and perfection, yet by doing so, it is still not a proper poem because the poet is hiding his emotion and honesty in aptness that is a barrier to the truth For without the integrity and passion the poem will be a perfectly executed poem, it may win laurels and win in a competition, but it is still words that will remain so as a demonstration of the art of writing but it will never be a poem.
