Shells

This poem was written during the aftermath of an outburst against non-selfish writing. Real writing should be selfish, and it can only be of use to others if it is so. It must be written from the heart, about personal experience. Authentic. Personal. My message to all who use pen and paper: write for others by writing for and about yourself.

Shells

Those who write but for others

have no heart and no soul,

the shell of a man fallen,

a future of shame,

only the anonymous will live,

only the shells will succeed,

anonymity brings pleasure,

success, greed
