A Poem by Korin

Why pay to write?

Why am i being suggested to pay someone what i write?
Limitations are what drive me insane about today's society.
Why is the amount of cash i bare within my pockets continuously questioned with where i wish to advertise my pieces?
Is this serious?
shouldn't it be more about what people have to offer intellectually and not financially?
I must be from mars or something. 
i don't understand.

I would love to get paid for writing poetry but I do know what you mean. Words are powerful because unlike money, they touch the soul of the reader in a way that can be more rewarding than dollars and cents. They come from a personal place.

I believe a writer will need to network themselves when selling books. If just writing and learning/seeking to improve. No need to pay. Many good sites. Scary part. Today with greedy publishers and open net. We must self-publish our work at the beginning. Writing is hard work and effort.
