What Makes It Poetry

 

What makes a poem, think it through,

what does poetry mean to you?

It need not have rhythm, need not have rhyme,

just expression of thought at a moment in time.

No need for rules, letting the words flow free;

well, that’s what poetry means to me.

It can be long, or it can be short,

forget all the things that you’ve been taught.

A free way to put your feelings in writing;

to let flow with anger or passion igniting.

Some seek to say it does not fit the bill;

remember, this only reflects on them ill,

for too narrow-minded, to accept what they see --

there are no real rules defining what’s poetry.
