The World of Undiscovered Poetry

Updated on June 24, 2013
Source


Behind layers of websites, deep within the recesses of the search engines, resides a world of poets waiting to be found. Poetry has existed for thousands of years and the world is familiar with great poets such as Homer, Shakespeare, and Poe who have shaped the world of poetry as we know it today. As we recognize these greats of poetry, there are many more great poets who will never get the chance to be discovered, because poetry isn’t recognized as it once was. Everywhere you look there are posters of people made famous, not because of their talent, but because they represent what the world finds glamorous in this day. This perception has been imbedded deep within the minds of the public by men of greed who don’t appreciate beauty or talent. These men only appreciate profit and they support whatever they feel will make them rich, while the true artists of this world stifle their creativity to fit in, or starve to death on the streets. This is disheartening, but despite the hardships of being a poet in today’s society, there are still people who rise to the challenge and I have decided to enlighten the world by showing where these poets can be discovered.

There are many poetry sites that can be found online, but if you were to search for them, you would mostly discover a bunch of abandoned sites where poets once tried to write. The other thing you might discover is a number of scam sites that seek to take advantage of would be poets by selling them false accolades under the guise of poetry competitions. You might be tempted to give up at this point and stop searching, but deep down in the search engine results is where you will find these undiscovered poets. There are sites like” Poetry Over Music”,” Flexwriters Creative Network”, and “All Poetry.com” where thousands of undiscovered poets try to network and get themselves known, and then there are sites like Facebook, and Blog Talk Radio where you will find many more poets getting lost in the shuffle, because these sites are just too large for the world to take notice.

The world of poetry is very much alive still, and I have read truly great poets the world may not have ever heard of, but they have inspired me to better myself when it comes to my poetry. Decades from now, when these poets have long since passed away the world might finally catch a glimpse of their poetic genius, but for now I encourage anyone who reads this Hub to go to the sites I have just mentioned and maybe just maybe you will discover some poetry that changes your life.

      This is the introductory to the series I want to do. Did you receive my emails. I'm hoping to get to work soon on this.

      Great piece, Philly. Your links look interesting too. i've bookmarked this hub to come back and look at bit more at the online links. Trouble is, I'm probably bogged down with too many writing sites as it is!! Nice that you care about poets lying low, waiting to be discovered...and often just giving up the ghost. Ah, well!
