    I’ve never written a perfect poem
    for I have continually found that once I have written from the depths of my soul, my soul grows deeper.
    I’ve never written a perfect poem
    for each time I express the heartbreak of a broken heart
    love finds a way to break it once again.
    I’ve never written a perfect poem
    for each time the expressions of my pen,
    are reflective of this depraved society,
    it is only made to bleed once again
    as i consider this day’s social dismay.
    I’ve never written a perfect poem
    never lived a perfect life.
    never loved a perfect love
    never been a perfect poet.
    and yet I write
    for not to write would be a sin against my poetic soul
    and I would fail destiny,
    miss the purpose for which this poet was born...
    to someday, somehow by the bleeding of the heart
    the tragic soliloquy of the soul, or by the
    conquest of deep, dark valleys of despair
    live a life that writes the perfect poem.

    If anyone can speak on this you can. The way you went about this one is simply marvelous, just as our lives are constantly evolving, so is our poetry. Awesome.
