Write for today
And like it’s all
That’ll be left of you
Tomorrow.

Never write for popularity.
Write with clarity, but
‘Don’t make everything said’.

Write a million things;
An ode to the voice
Inside your head,
An elegy for the living,
A carpe diem for the dead.

Write to tell
People going
Through hell,
To just keep
Going;
They’ll find a way out.

Don’t write for approval,
Or judgement;
That way misery lies.
Poetry can’t be judged,
Not properly –
It’s subjective,
Different to
Different eyes.

Write for yourself;
Doesn’t matter if it’s
Good enough for
Anyone else.

You’ll never be Shakespeare.
But he’d never
Have been you;
Pour your heart into it,
That’s the best
That you can do.
'Don't make everything said' is a quote from Evelyn Waugh, giving advice to a friend on writing. 

Thanks for reading! :)

I love this, it reflects so much of my own thoughts. It's nice to see others with some of the same viewpoints.
