I am a Poet because Poetry...

Poetry is a feeling,

that you share with the world.


Poetry is an opportunity,

to be yourself in a completely different way.


Poetry lets you break rules

which rules you decide...


precision of language

correctness of grammar



Poetry lets you have control of language.

Poetry proves that pens are mightier than swords.


Poetry is an introduction,

Poetry is a dance,

Poetry is a song,

Poetry is the collection of sights and sounds and smells and feelings

Poetry is an equation: it is all around us, it is used every day.


Poetry is what you make of it.

Its interpretation is whatever you decide.


Poetry lets us share, 

lets us vent, grieve, celebrate, inspire...


Poetry connects us in a way no other art can--

it is simple; it is complex

Poetry is the element that adds dimension and description to life.

This poem is about: 
Our world
