Have you thought about publishing that poem that you have been polishing? Or maybe entering a contest? I am not in any way associated with the contests or journals linked here, except that I also submit work to them.
I did some research (mostly for myself, but I thought I'd share) on journals and contests for poets to submit to, and these are what I found. I will keep the links live, and I hope that this helps you out so much, friend.
And, if you get published, let me know! I know how hard it is, and would love to celebrate your successes with you!
