What Poetry Means To Me

Poetry. A simple word, but in reality it's anything but simple. Poetry is more than what meets the eye. It stands out amongst other forms of literature. It allows you to paint a picture in someone's mind, showing them how you feel. Poetry lets people into a world where you can show who you are, what makes you tic, any emotion you can let out into poetry. Such as Robert Frost often wrote about nature and how it effects us symbolically. You can do the same, or you can stand up for your beliefs, calm yourself by writing about your emotions, voice your opinions. Poetry to me is many things, an outlet, a form of persuasion, and a place to let your mind run free. So try it and you may see, poetry is much harder than 1-2-3.
