Poetry is just the evidence of life.
If your life is burning well,
poetry is just the ash – Leonard Cohen
Poetry is the journal of a sea animal
living on land, wanting to fly in the air – Carl Sandburg
My role in society, or any artist or poet’s role,
is to try and express what we all feel.
Not to tell people how to feel.
Not as a preacher, not as a leader,
but as a reflection of us all – John Lennon
I love poetry because it speaks one language, read in different languages to whoever is reading it but all turns out to mean the same thing.
