The Creator

Updated on September 22, 2015

In the seventh row,

Sitting in the last column

Apart from the mob

My pen is on the trot

Running after words

Coming from the heart

Not writing what is heard.

With a weak memory

And with a fragile empathy

A habitual creator

Not the follower of an orator

Knowledge as a burden

Imposed without a concern

I am a follower of imagination

Worthy without repetition

In the class

Looking out of the glass

A sun is setting

My ink is wetting

A poem is taking birth

Coming on this earth

A world of my words

Beyond this world

A place filled with dreams

Let me go

Set me free

I am no student

But a teacher soon to be

Beyond these alien lines

Creating what will be mine

      This poem is so tender. It just reeks with emotion and empathy. You short lines pack an emotional punch. Very creative and poignant!

      Here, Richa, you show a talent truly worthy of encouragement, and I am proud to be able to see it and give it to you.

      "Being a student," however, is not confined to dead classrooms often better left in the past (at least until later), but must continue throughout life for the aspiring poet, or for any other kind of artist.

      Your dreams, your inspirations, not to speak of your poetry and your interesting and meaningful metaphors, will all continue to derive ultimately from what you have learned, if not in a classroom, then in the hardest school of all, everyday life.

      You are what you are, and what you are continues to be shaped minute by minute by what you learn.

      Continued best wishes,

      Max, Chicago west suburbs, Tuesday, Sept. 22, 2015, 5 p.m.
