Poetry a Contribution Beyond Validation
Poetry a melodious emotional expression
laced with philosophy and innovation;
rests on a reader’s impression.
Poetry contests are a beauty competition
arranged to give mastery recognition
based on personal justification.
Poetry hosts are creatures born with imperfection
honored with the privilege to host a competition,
bested sometimes by personal gratification.
For me poetry is a form of expression
kindled by an impression
unlimited by public conviction.
I find prompts and contests sources of inspiration
but I don’t bank on hosts’ recognition.
Yet I enjoy comments and commendation.
Poetry is humanity’s form of communication
in art and beauty showing intellect’s transformation.
Why seek recognition when you are making a contribution?
Your poetry is your emotion in voice and conviction.
Go ahead join or host a competition,
but remember your contribution is yours for validation.
Inspired by: " In a false quarrel there is no real valor" William Shakespeare.
