While the famous and great poets are followed and supported, the truth is, most poets are not.  It doesn't mean that the less popular and less great poets do not exist or do not matter.  They simply starve, or become obscure and forgotten.  The sacrifice they are asked to give causes them to feel the pain of existence more, become insane more, and understand reality more.  Life is difficult, and more the case for true poets.  Poets are not often thought of as rock stars or popular or the voice of a generation.  They are the recorders of the culture and the generations the poet exists in and amidst go along like waters of a stream, and the poet observes, records and shares.
