What does Poetry mean to me?
The words in my head that I can't get out.
My fingers flwing over keys as my head clicks along.
Poetry is me. With a computer. And my brain.
It's is pure creativity.
Flowing throught me.
To be a poet is to use yourself to make beauty.
And beauty comes in all sizes.
Poetry connects us, inspires us, makes us all real.
I am a poet because I want to make people feel.
Feel less alone.
And I am not alone.
I am a poet because I want that phrase to be spoken by every human being on this blue, beautiful planet.
I am a poet because I want everyones' beautiful brains to read that and believe it.
I am a poet because we are all beautiful and unique and rare and I want us all to stand together and believe in ourselves.
And I am a poet because I want everyone to be a poet, too.
To tell their story in their own unique way.
To make their own poems.
To make someone else believe it, too.
I am a poet. And this is my poem.
