    Old Dogs

    Dostoevsky,
    Hemingway,
    Tolstoy,
    Fitzgerald,
    Bukowski
    are the revered 
    old dogs
    of a forgotten writing
    period

    their work was confined
    to a room,a raging typewriter
    and bouts with alcohol,

    they came out as brilliant,
    with works that stands beyond
    multitudes of destruction

    and here are we,asking for a follow,
    a like to keep the insanity within,
    treading carefully in the sea of words

    we don't know how does it feels
    to be tormented by failure 
    and self doubt while living alone

    maybe we never will.
