2021 Ars Poetica Poems

Write, right?

Write, Write
Even if
You have nothing
To say
Make it habit
More than a goal
If you don’t
Just do it
You’re leaving
A Hole
In your notebook
Where thoughts
Should assemble
And emptiness
Is what’s left
To ressemble
That you had nothing
To say
And no one cares
So write, write
Every day
Before you’re dead
And left
Something unsaid.

By Makar
