Nuggets of Gold

Updated on August 4, 2012

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.
