Is this poetry, or self centered contemplation?
Is this a path into the heart, as it should be?
The heart speaks in ways unclear,
But does a poet forget the human condition
And solely focus on his own;
And is still considered a poet?
Or does he become inclined to meditate
On the purpose of life as it stands?
He is a conduit for true feeling;
Speaking for himself, is he a poet
If no one understands?
Is this poetry, or is he insane
To believe that his thoughts have purpose?
Is this considered pertinent to the arguments
Of his own time? Or has he separated himself
From that great discussion?
Is feeling and sincerity enough to justify him?
Or must he latch onto injustice
And social commentary?
Is this poetry?
