Poetry's Meaning

Words bundled in my brain

Thoughts knocking on walls

Speech lessens the meaning

Of these thoughts in my head

To talk to someone is talking to a wall


Express yourself, they say

No paint or sketches will create my artwork for it's words spilling from mind

Words on the tip of my tongue

Lips pressed together rather than flapping the words

Poetry is the art and the way I express myself without saying a word

This poem is about: 
My community
