Do you think those who write poems are a lonely bunch?
It is so difficult to find people who like reading poems. It is even more difficult to find those who write poems. And out of those, if you can find one that takes poetry writing seriously, oh boy you are really in luck. (Quick, give me 6 numbers from 1 – 45);P
None of my friends like poems. My wife has no interest in them either. And my colleagues, they think I am weird. :(
Hey hey hey! What's wrong with weird? There are some pretty weird poeple who make it good. Hmmm... come to think of it, many people who make it good are pretty weird. In fact, you need to be really weird to make it good in this world. Else you are just one of the ordinaries.
It's hard to live on the expectations of others. So stay weird, be positive, and be happy.
