Is short poetry more powerful?

It’s amazing how many thousands of words I have written, but no matter how long a poem is, it is often the shortest and most direct poetry that gets noticed.

Never have I had an Instagram post over 70 likes. For some this is a lot and for others it is next to nothing. Until I posted the image below and as of today I had 97 likes. (Just 3 more for my first 100 post).

So the most concise words are more heartfelt? Cut the crap maybe and get to the point?

Maybe it’s an instant connection, a glimmer of hope summed up in a few words.

Maybe my poetry will become a lot shorter from now on.
