- Writing poetry has always been a one of my strong suites, I think. You see, poetry’s weird in that way, you could think that the poem that you just wrote is the new Ulysses, but another might just regard it as “just another poem.”
It’s almost like modern art, you could see a deep meaning in one of your sculptures or paintings, but another could just see a bunch of shapes. That’s also the beauty of poetry too. Poetry isn’t just showing off your writing, it’s showing that you can take criticism and that you’re not afraid to be told that you’re wrong. That’s why some people don’t like writing poetry, they don’t want to be told there wrong and that they should have done it this way or that way.
