What is a poem to you? Is it just words put together that happen to rhyme?
Is it words that discuss your history or what is occurring in the present time?
To me a poem is much more than words on a page
It is my outlet, it is my fingers purging my worries and my pain onto a blank space
My keyboard screaming with the thoughts of yesterday and the stress that I have gone though
I can not help but to embrace the now not so empty space
Since my tongue cannot speak the words as beautifully as the metaphors that take its place
When you speak with your emotions it is sometimes hard to understand
When you turn your emotions into an art you see your thoughts from a different stance
Poetry cannot leave you, it cannot betray you, it cannot cause you guilt or regret
Poetry has allowed me to express myself and allows me to be more confident
When I feel there is a day where my thoughts are unclear
I can sit and write and feel the world disappear
That is the beauty of poetry
It does not let the chaos of the world define me.
