Tom Hatch- A Poem

The courage to be a poet

Or write poetry the words, the passion,
The pain, the delight, the hatred's moment
Catching it before it leaves you
Dried with no thought or a dead end
The rejection, we decline in your decline
The criticism ha! You can't be a critic too blue
Or any other color don't even try but they do.
What is the alternative to sit here 
And only think the thoughts that
Haunt me good or bad as they are

This is why I do not keep a loaded gun around
The house that has eternity 
Written all over it
