Nuggets of Gold

She said
poems are like
nuggets of gold.
Never stop mining for them
Out of hundreds
of poems.
Only a few
may be recognized.

But, still write
with all your efforts.
As if
there's no tomorrow.

Leave your mark
with the history of humanity.
Its record
is the best witness
of true success.

There's much more
to poems
than money and praise.
True poetry
comes from the joy
of finding the line.

And occassionally
the words will inspire
the heart, soul and spirit.

Interesting Poem!!! I agree, poetry is not about the money or becoming recognized...to me it is pouring the heart and soul into a few lines that can inspire and move a person!! Well Done!!!
