A Secret

When a poet wants to write only about what he knows, what he understands and what he knows as being “right”, he limits the poem to his own human limits. On the contrary, the poet who doesn’t try to monopolize the language but who let the world speak through him allows something much bigger to come into his writing. The good poet is humble. He doesn’t try to achieve his own greatness; he let the greatness of the world transform him and his poem. When the poet begins to wonder if his work is good enough for him, if it demonstrates his worth, he has already lost sincerity.

Be humble,
and if you don’t have anything to say
let the silence be.
