So this is poetry

So is this poetry

One hand and head in a dictionary

Maybe that’s what defeating me

I speak from my heart you see

I talk of conscious reality

I don’t need to be seen

Intellectually or literary

Just be seen as gifted in poetry

I choose to speak from my passion

Speak in words that echo clarity

Easy to understand, easy to read

Using imagination to paint a masterpiece

And maybe I have not git there yet

But I still keep giving it my best

To appeal to the masses and not just a clique

I want to see the restoration of poetry

As just important as novels and books

Where people can’t wait to take a look

At what’s coming out with such anticipation

Poetry offering messages giving gratification

To all those who read them

And then want to share

The message of love, light and peace they find in there

That’s what poetry means to me

But also a source of escapist release

Found in words the me so much to me.
