The poet and his self portrait

In all of art,it is common for the artist to look inward and self portray,it is given and acceptable.

what is also expected and given is for the artists main body of work to be seperate and independent from the artists day to day.less introspection more insights and observations.

But in poetry,this some how doesn’t.A poet only writes about herself about her life and her feelings,and her thoughts on her life.if youve been writing poety for a few years its acceptable,you dont know better and havnt had time to grow,but if youve been writing for a long stretch,and you are still only self portraiting,telling us about how you feel,no its un acceptable,and if I could I would ban you from calling yourself a poet,because you are so self absorbed,and are not doing anything for the art.
