I will express what I have to say even more for the future in the future.
People are more than bones and muscles and fat. People have emotions and feelings and intelligence. The key difference between poets and non-poets is the following, actually any writer for that matter. A non-writer can live with a broken bone, smaller muscles, or more fat for a period of time. However, a writer can’t live without writing because eventually emotions, feelings, and intelligence form into a restless ball. If it isn’t written in a notebook or punched on the keyboard, a nagging combination of irritation and anxiety tends to form. Sometimes determination as well in the mix, and this is my take on the major difference between writers and everyone else.
