Why I Write Poetry (Poetry Is There)

When your bearings are heavy and no one is aware
Pen, paper and poetry is there
An outlet for all of your pain
You have nothing to lose but only strength to gain
Learning more about yourself every time you write
Feeling powerful and strong; filled with might
Letting your tears bleed out on that paper
Instead of letting the pain over take you
You see, poetry sees a person, better than they can see themselves
As the pen is writing and words are flowing
The person feels something they have never felt
And after that first poem is done
A life of artistic poetry has begun



I was rocking with this poem throughout every verse. That's crazy. You took the words out of my mouth. I love it.


Aww thanks so much!! :)
