A Matter of Fact and Emotion

Thu, 06/27/2019 - 23:33 -- kway

The way I see it
any sentence
can become a poem,

It's just a matter of how
creative the writer
wishes to be in terms of spacing.

They say art
is a beautiful thing.

Then they say that
beauty is in the
eye of the beholder.

So if that's the truth...

Then emotion is the reason
for poetry being
considered an art form.

But if we
hate ourselves
for showing
the least bit of emotion,

And despise our
scars for
proving that we've survived
the trama of our
perfect little lives,

Then why,
If we do not wish to
show our emotion
is it okay to read of others?

The only way
that this makes sense,

Is because society
has defined poetry as
a collection of sentences
creatively spaced.

And simply forgot to mention
the fact of emotion.
