So You Want To Be A Poet
So you think you might want to be a poet
And why do you think this?
Fame and fortune?
All wrong reasons my friend.
What will you write about?
Something you think a reader would like?
Write for yourself, not for others
If others like it, that’s great
but they won’t always like it
If you really want to be a poet
Read, read and read some more
write for yourself
for the enjoyment of writing poetry
there is no other reason
