Where Is The Poem I Have Waited For All My Life?

WHERE IS THE POEM I HAVE WAITED FOR ALL MY LIFE?

Where is the poem I have waited for all my life?
The one poem that would say to me,
“You are a true poet, at last”
Where is the poem
Which would make me be Poetry?
Where?
The years have gone
Have I labored in vain?
The darkness comes
Light will not come again.
I try and I write still
But I will never know
Poetry will live,
But I soon will go.

Poignant last lines. By our words we live; by our words we survive. Write on and the poetry will take care of itself. Kindest regards, Sandra
Poets and painters have the same enigma... Recognition appears when decay... I am waiting for that poem also...hope I'll have my star while living. Cate
