Poetry is about much more than rhymes and clever imagery. At the end of the day, poetry is always about people.
We read poetry with our eyes, listen to its beauty with our ears, and understand the words with our mind. But good poetry, the best poetry, must always be felt within the human heart. It must be experienced. The best poems use the magic of words only to illuminate a deep understanding of our humanity, to perhaps bring us to a time we once lived or take us to a time we've only dreamed of being.
Millions of poems have encouraged friends and lovers to revisit or discover their hearts, have reminded people again and again and again of their intrinsic humanity. Many poems are about real people living real lives and they love to express them selves throughout their lives.
Let the countdown begin.
Here is a poem that i wrote, not much of a poem but, I hope you enjoy it:
I'm not perfect,
I'll annoy you,
I'll tik you off,
I'll say stupid things,
and even take them back,
But push all those things aside,
and you will never find a girl who,
loves and cares about you more,
then me! ♥
