They're more than words on a page

nor something we are forced nowadays

to read at school everyday.


They're more than Frost and Shakespeare,

looking for rhymes that you may hear,

or tone of the atmosphere.

Poetry is an art.

It gives visualization, representation,

hope in this generation,

and a break from temptation.

With everything happening in society,

it's hard to be truly genuine

and comfortable in our own skin.

Yes, our true selves are imprisoned.

Poetry is an expression.

My chance to break free from all tension

and break the walls I've been trapped within.

Poetry gives me the chance.

The chance to be free

and express "I'm more than what you see."


It has no limitation,

for it's a freedom of expression

mentioned without any hesitation.
