Would you dare to bare your soul to a stranger?
Poetry is so powerful! Especially when spoken directly from the creator in a whirling torrent of internal emotion. I could read a poem every year of my life, and discover new meaning each time.
So does the Ted community write their own poetry?
If so do you dare bare your soul here and now?
I don’t like to explain my own writing, because I believe that poetry is more about what it means to YOU than what it meant to me. Here is a short poem of my own to start things off:
There is a name for all those little things gone missing in your life
And there’s a word to strike the hunger from your ever-pressing strife.
Take the whole of everything you’ve gathered in your hold
And scatter all your trappings in the breaking of the mold.
Reinvent the manifest in the shadow of the truth
And rediscover all the things you’ve sorted under proof.
