I'm not sure I qualify as a new poet any longer. I know I have relatively little experience, but a seemingly huge output. I am honored to have friends(fans) enjoy my offerings, and some few who ask My advice.
the best off the top of my head advice I can give is USE SPELLCHECK. and use the proper form of the word that is a homonym Use Maid instead of Made if speaking of a young lady. Use Soul instead of sole if speaking of the spiritual center of a person. Remember your words once published will always be attached to your name. Be proud of your calling and the product you put out.
I am a grand father 19 times over (20 and 21 are cooking right now). I am surprised at the number of teens that follow me. and I am honored.
Thank you for your consideration.
"I decided that it was not wisdom that enabled [poets] to write their poetry, but a kind of instinct or inspiration, such as you find in seers and prophets who deliver all their sublime messages without knowing in the least what they mean." Socrates

Don't Fear the Tears
10 5 6
A man of strength does not fear the honest tears of a woman.
If you enjoy my work, I'd like to repay a debt of gratitude to the lady who pointed me toward this calling. You may know her as Selena Howard. She has an urgent need. She must have cataract surgery to regain her eyesight, yet her financial situation requires help to fund the co-pay for her insurance. If you find you can help, even a little bit, it will be greatly appreciated. If you are unable to help with the finances then please, sent good thoughts and energy. this is the fund site http://www.gofundme.com/x53ers Thank you for your consideration
