You cannot wish it away

You cannot wish it away

A Poem by Pestonjee_

You cannot wish it away

That elbow of reality
sharply nudging your dreams

Those ugly stains of the past
still smudging your sleeve

The sore on your skin
that itches for a remedy

You cannot wish it away

The word left unaddressed
weeping upon the page

till you find it a poem
to treasure and to keep

Us, who love to write. Like Mr. Hemingway. We must bleed to the paper. All of us make many mistakes and if we are lucky. We become kinder and softer on the people near. I enjoyed your honest thoughts my friend. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

We must have thick skin and accepting nature with creative unstoppable mind if we truly cherish to be a worthy writer, scribbler, creator. Cloaking the glitches will only initiate egoistic fungus on our writings. True piece penned here, be blessed. :)

Indeed. We cannot wish away our experiences. They influence the way we feel and write. We might as well use our experiences in our writings.
