Do I need to have a specific topic for poetry?

No. Poetry can be on just about any topic and it does not need to be specifically focussed on a limited number of elements. There is a poet within each of us... it is just a few of us who choose to give words to our emotions and thoughts who are called poets. Therefore, go ahead and write. Let the poet within you live and flourish!

Poems To some, the words must rhyme To some, the words are enough to give warmth to the heart To some, poems are emotions and events combined all in all... it is through poems that one could talk his heart, mind and soul out. The beauty of poetry lies within the emotion of the poet, and the mood of the reader or listener. Poem, next to music, is the language of my heart.

POEM As she flies away The road glitters with Our last season's fruit Each wing's beat is a lifted marble Each wind kiss is a fallen horn And the trampled clouds are sad tunes of asteroids Brought down to A heart's Thimble.

Absolutely! You are so right. We are all poets. We who write, have overcome the fear of being criticized and have overcome the fear of what others may say about us. We are not afraid to show our faults and weaknesses. We are not afraid to tell the world, I'm not perfect, but I exist. We are not afraid to show our emotions.
