A rant

Some people don’t understand that poetry is not just words

and popularity contests and cliches

and followers.

It’s about emotion and connection.

Not everyone can write but everyone can try.

Some people have followers just because of cliques. 

Read between the lines.

Go back to the essence of the written word.

Not the likes or the bullshit. 

Not even the reviews

Close your phone and read a poetry book. Does it make you reflect? Can you connect? Feel more? Cry? Laugh? Smile? Does it make you want to read it over again? 

What do you think?

    Poetry is an excellent way to rant. Saves my sanity many a day.

    Poetry can be the key to open spheres within you to find aspects about you, you did not know you had!
