PAD Challenge Day 19: Authority on Poetry

Today's challenge for poem-a-day April event is to write a authority poem. We write poems, but can we really claim the authority on poetry? Check out today's poem, 

authority on poetry
who can really claim it?
every poem is a new creation
as difficult as that for a beginner
every poet is a beginner
when they begin to write a new poem

authority on poetry
who can really claim it?
after writing thousands of poems
a day comes when we fumble for words

authority on poetry
who can really claim it?
thousands of inspirations around
still we stuck in writer’s block

authority on poetry
who can really claim it?
when ideas and prompts are available
still the heart can’t think about a single one!

authority on poetry
who can really claim it?
writing poems everyday
still hard to write a single line today

authority on poetry
who can really claim it?
beautiful arrangement of words
so easy to create  sometimes
beautiful expression of heartfelt emotions
so difficult to create sometimes

authority on poetry
who can really claim it?
the whole world of words
looks empty sometimes
for a feeling of the soul

authority on poetry
who can really claim it?
what is an ideal poem?
simple words and simple emotions
or
complex structure and complex meaning?
or both?
who knows the answer?
the one that touches your heart

authority on poetry
who can really claim it?
a variety of poetic forms
or just a free verse
what’s the best poetry
the one that touches your heart


authority on poetry
who can really claim it?
what brings authority?
talent or learning?
hard-work or reading?
creativity has no boundaries
of definitions

authority on poetry
who can really claim it?
how to write a good poem?
what does it need?
focus or distraction
or both?
everything is good
if it helps writing

authority on poetry
who can really claim it?
i can’t claim it!
just wishing, i may
someday be able to name
myself, 
'a poet'!
