They say the eyes are the windows to the soul
poetry is the voice for those who feel voiceless
its words that come together to fill up the holes
its senteces of happiness but also calls of distress.
In the soul there is a voice hidden inside
and messages coming from the soul that doesn't want to hide.
All my favorite poets use language as art
Pablo Neruda, Emily Dickinson and Robert Frost,
figurative language, diction and syntax all have their a part
incorporated into the work is a voice that won't be lost.
I want to be like all the great artists,
to create art from language and heart.
Poetry isn't something to be learned
it comes from the soul, like music comes to a musician
poetry is the compilation of the sounds that the soul yearned
all my feelings coming together to make words that blend into a composition.
Poetry is made when it needs to be
its for the young, the old- everyone, can't you see?
