Poetry allows poets to experiment with form and tradition while creating emotionally engaging work. Poems are like little word machines. Moving them requires effort, but you may learn to be a master-thinker in the workshop of your poems. You can become a brilliant poet by learning as much about contemporary poetry and writing regularly, aggressively, and passionately.
Just as Pramod Rajput, a Software Architect, a renowned Hindi/Urdu poet, and a novelist, gained instant popularity when his poetry was quoted in the Indian Parliament by non-other than the honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on 7th Feb 2019.

Let’s dive into his ways of becoming a successful poet,
Allow your subject to come to you
Reading poetry is the most straightforward approach to improving your poetry. You may know renowned poets like William Wordsworth, Walt Whitman, and Emily Dickinson, but you may be unfamiliar with modern poets and new poems. Finding new poetry collections and reading contemporary literary publications to expose yourself to fresh voices is essential for becoming a better poet.
Try different topics
There are numerous types of poetry to choose from. Even if you have a favorite sort of poem, it’s worth exploring with diverse poetry genres. Playing with form can aid in developing your poetry writing talents and the discovery of new styles of poetry that suit your tastes.
Every day, just as a successful entrepreneur goes to the store and a successful doctor goes to the workplace, a great poet goes to poetry. A successful poet is immersed in poetry, reading, composing, and refining their work regularly. Successful poets don’t wait for “inspiration” to form a poem; instead, they sit down at their desk, computer, or journal and get to work, considering poetry writing as the work that it is.
Be open to feedback.
Gather knowledge from everywhere you can. Find people who are more knowledgeable. While some individuals will appreciate your poems, others might not. Don’t get caught up in what the haters have to say; instead, accept criticism politely and keep writing and revising your work.
Let there be no limitations.
In poetry, the sky is the limit. Don’t back down from trying new things or be concerned about the result. When you are unrestricted to play, you will produce some of your best work.
