What Poetry Has Taught Me

What Poetry Has Taught Me

Samantha Ludwig


There is this passion I have

It’s called poetry

It has taught me several things

Like how to write a simile


Some exposes secrets

While some is real bright 

Then there are others

Describing the moonlight


I’ve also learned common themes 

Like everything is not what it seems

Once you get past the gore

Look for the extended metaphor


I learned that poetry is a passion

A want, a need, a desire

It’s not everyone’s cup of tea

But it is something I have learned to admire
