    Benilda, I agree. Sometimes the journey through the struggle is more rewarding than the outcome, in whatever art you are doing. Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment.

That is the reality for writing poetry, for sure! Writing Lyrics on the other hand appears to be much more profitable from what I can see. Has a poem ever gone viral? Is writing lyrics a debased form of poetry?

It appears that the marriage of music and lyrics into song is more “magical” and appreciated than either word s or music alone?

    That is so true. Personally I regard songs as poetry to music. I sometimes write my longer poems to music and try to get the metre moving to the beat. Thank you for visiting and taking time out to comment.
