Why Poetry?

Wed, 06/29/2016 - 23:40 -- Rosalee

Too many words are often left unspoken,

Too scared of the reaction.

Words that are powerful.

The electricity was growing stronger

And, In need of an outlet to escape:

Physical or mental, Physical or mental


The unspoken outlet,

The escape of my being,

The words are now spoken without fear,

Without restriction.


Simply free flowing and unedited

From brain to paper.

The original of the original.

The strongest, powerful,

My poetry.
