Starving Poets Club by Damon E. Johnson

Diverse backgrounds and titles

unfamiliar names and faces

all searching for the voice inside

that will one day take us places

Seems we all could use a peaceful place

that’s detached from a colorless mood

especially when the comforts of home

no longer provide complete solitude

Joined together by the poetic passion

that runs rapidly through our veins

while individually yearning to be released

from life’s emotional chains

Some people write for fame and fortune

while others merely desire to vent, but

most of us would settle for a moment of clarity

even if we never profited one single cent
