A poets family

 

A poet loves all of his creations like family,

every single one of them, like a mother to a child.

 

But the world only loves the poets best

and will ignore the rest.

 

So the good poet must learn to look upon Ďallí of his creations with love and thankfulness ,as if all of them were hits.

 

Other wise the poet will tend to run the risk (so to speak)of,

breaking up the family and loosing the creative spirit all together.

 

Then both the poet and the public will miss out.
