'Water' by Nayyirah Waheed
lol joking.. Even though she hides it, theturkishmarch is an awesome writer. Her work is more contextualised to the reality of feeling.. That being said, Tasnimsmentalroadtrip and distantsmoke are extremely raw and original with how they express their thoughts.. Both amazing writers.. and there are definitely others out there! If im looking for something spiritual, I most definitely would check out this blog nasserelamine, an amazing person with an amazing insight into the nature of our world. However, my favorite poet on Tumblr.. would have to be Soliloquyofsilence.
if you find my work trite. too simplistic. lazy. too easy. elementary. an amalgamation of random enter keystrokes. lacking any craft. artsy with no substance. if you can not find the rooms in my work. maybe this is not the right house for you. which, is natural. not everyone will find the home in my work, a home they want to live in. art is extremely relative. it’s a very very personal vibration. that shifts, alters, retracts, and expands. if you don’t enjoy my writing because it’s not your cup of tea, that’s totally understandable. if you don’t enjoy my work, because it does not fit your standard of what poetry is, or what it should mean, it would be so much easier to bypass it and leave it where it, is for others to enjoy, than to give it more of your energy and write about how bad it is, make jokes about it, define what it should be, to fit your liking. if it fit your exact liking, it wouldn’t be mine, it would be yours. art does not have to fit who we are, to be respected for what it is. whether we like someone’s art or not does not determine its worth, or its validity. it simply means its not for us. every once in a while i read the messages in my tags, and i don’t always respond to these types of messages, but i have been wanting to address this for a while.
Personally I do credit you for your contemporary thought and agree with aspects of your interpretation of art, but how can you claim yourself to be an artist, if you cannot appreciate criticisms. My slur was definitely out of order, and apologies for it. However it’s not to say that your ideas and expressions are infallible to any aspect of criticism. I completely disagree with the idea of simply accepting a piece without questioning what it in essence represents, and how well it has done its job. It does not take energy to portray art, but utter passion and imagination; and I don’t mean to sound like a complete ass, but there is hardly much originality and depth to the ideas you’re trying to portray. You’re living off hype and demand respect for your work, but if I were to do that, then I would even take my baby nephews scribbles as works of genius creativity. There is also an aspect of rational thinking in art, its not completely fluid and you need to respect that. Legends such as Da Vinci, did not merely draw scribbles and demand that people try find something in it, the ideas were vast and beautifully crafted, his work could take ones mind to places it could never have imaged. I apologies for sounding like an ass, but you are very much hype driven.. and demanding the respect you arrogantly think you deserve is not art.
