True Poets Are Invincible


The soul of true poets are purest
their goodwill thrive in the heart
none can ever kill their expression
instinct and intuition their weapon

The body of poets are finite
but their spirits are infinite
bards compositions will last
as poetry itself is everlasting

No poet killer can annihilate
any true poet whose only intent
is to inform the world of the truth
whoever that poet killer be dies first

True poets are ever invincible
they are protected by a shield
of freedom enthusing expressive
and meaningful poems of substance

    As the pen is mightier than the sword, true poets are invincible. Some are incorrigible and a few are inbriated too perhaps. A good write Brato. (Report) Reply

    Expression of words is the greatest release. Also expressing yourself without hurting others is important. Words can bring people together and poets have the ability to do this. (Report) Reply

    Good expression in the artistic composition is the virtue of a true poet, and thus a solid reason of the invincibility of true poets and poetry...As Keats addressed his Nightingale, Thou wast not born for death, Immortal Bird! No hungry generations tread thee down..., because the bird is alive through her never-ending melody, similarly poets live in their ideas they share once with the world..No poet killer can annihilate/any true poet whose only intent/is to inform the world of the truth/...
    if they carry truth in their words and veins, if they are honest and true to their art, they really are invincible...
    very true Marvin Brato sr.! ! ! (Report) Reply
