Bohemian Poet: a Poem

Updated on July 30, 2017

Val is a life-long student of the psycho-philosophy of living and a devoted practitioner of many techniques that enhance personal evolution.

Oftentimes "it's not what you know, but whom you know"

so a crappy piece of poetry may find its way to top

shallow and confusing with no talent to show

like a painting created with a cleaning mop.

But then in some right hands it turns into gold

reaching a right market and advertised a lot

so it becomes a stock that gets oversold

as people like the crap that's massively bought.

Bohemian by soul, bohemian you'll stay

with all your poetical attempts ever

no matter what your kind of poetry may say

how deep it may be, inspiring or clever.

So write for your fun and for occasional praise

write for expressing what is deep in you

leaving it away from a success craze

and doing it for as long as it feels true.

Without that selling fever you can stop it all

when some other hobby steals your writing times

or when other interest voices its call

to replace this forming words into verses and rhymes.
