The Power of Poetry

Poetry taught me how to write Poetry

Prose has lots of rules and grammar and punctuation and it’s very cluttered in paragraphs, orderly yet stifling

Poetry                                   has less rules

                                                                But sometimes more.

It depends on the type of Poem.

Why limit yourself? Because CREATIVITY flourishes under

constraints

                                                                are paths that keep writers from getting lost, and

I could go

                                                                on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on

But the most important thing Poetry taught me is that

                                                                words are not the only art in literature

It is the

                                                                FORM

of the words, the

                                                                SHAPE

of the words, the

                                                                FONT

                                                                PARAGRAPHING

                                                                DECORATION

                                                                ANYTHING

that makes it true art

I wrote this poem in Word, so when I published it, a lot of the formatting was lost.
