Gotpoetry?

by northernlight

When ones content
Submit is pressed
Could this one be
One of your best

Does vanity live
In the quest to know
How you'll be received
By those who know

Whilst penning poems
Do our minds know it
Secretly seeking
The praise of poets

A really lovely meta-analysis of the poets
Experience, it made me smile, think and
contemplate - very well done

Cheers Ilan

if we never sought approval or praise we would become saints, don;t you think so?

    id like to say that i do it purely as an expression of self....but once you've received some, praise is like an addiction.
    Still...i think its less intrusive into ones life than heroine or hard liqour Very Happy

Soft and gentle rhythm, this
expresses truth that others miss.

Very enjoyable, your poem.
Best wishes, Mary Ann
