Poetry, not pretentiousness

Poets can come across as pretentious, it’s not pretentiousness,
it’s that we’ve forgotten how to write or speak in a way that’s not poetic. 
— —

boldly forward going 
into the eyes of the reader.

in thinking 
we could change 
and charge minds.

Pretentiousness be damned.
 — —

Within Echoes, 
Fire forged within us, 
the Dreams of Truth 
are scattered 
out into the Universe 
to be picked up 
or discarded, 
c’est la vie.
 — —

Does genesis stem 
from the early light of dawn
or dusky moonlight?
