Poetry taught me how to be proud of myself

When I used words that expressed things heartfelt

A message that I believed in.


Poetry taught me how to express

Things that I couldn’t naturally profess

For people don’t normally talk in stanzas


I was never good at speaking my mind

It was somehow better expressed when in rhymes

Although I’m not exactly sure why


Poems convey important messages

Poems that spread love and intelligence 

And capture the human spirit
