Writing a single poem is sometime very laborious or trouble-free depending on how the poet uses his wide and brilliant imagination. Oftentimes our minds are filled with great images but we are having a hard time converting it into a wonderful poem. Translating the image conceived by our inquisitive minds into a captivating verse requires deep focus for us to perfectly draw the overall appearance of the picture.
But there are instances that even if we see a vivid image in our mind we are still hindered by some unavoidable disturbances that we can’t even put a single line of poetic verse in describing what our brain has flawlessly visualized. This experience happens to every one of us; even those great poets suffer the same dilemma. But through constant employment of putting the image formed in our minds into verse we will surely hurdle this obstacle.
One channel that can help us realized what we have dreamed off is our heart. For instance, if we feel disgusted with what is happening in our society today, we are finding an outlet where we can freely express our feelings that hardly concealing in our hearts. A written verse that originates from the deepest part of our being gives some kind of relief.
It is somewhat a cure to the soul if we can articulate what our heart has deeply hiding through the use of poetry medium. Expressing unreservedly our emotions that have been sojourning in our hearts with the help of literature in verse is very much healthy. Never keep our negative feeling stays longer in the inner chamber of our heart for it is a very dangerous poison to our physical and mental health.
A poem directly written from the heart is a superb piece and it is beneficial to the author. It’s because our writings bears a mixture of love, sincerity, and empathy. Our hearts never lie and it can show whatever emotions that lingers in our being. Always speak the truth and do not alter what our hearts had says in writing a verse if we want that our work will surely remain in the pages of literature.
Even if we are only writing poetry for fun or just expressing our critical opinion with the use of poetic verse, it must be written with sincerity and compassion. And it can only be done if we allow our hearts to participate in our writing endeavor.
