Poetry is the one magical cure
It is incorruptible, pure
It is my way of capturing the essence of life
Regardless of all the happiness and strife
It s my personal way of solving any problem
Without waiting for time to dissolve them
It is not just my melancholy song
It is my way of getting things to move along
It helps capture all my feelings when life gets tough
Through all of life’s unfortunate stuff
Racking my mind for just the right words is my personal gym
I can imagine lazy rivers, or a monkey swinging from limb to limb
Best part is, it’s with me wherever I go,
Just have to make sure nothing can interrupt my flow
Writing poems on friends and love,
of delirious hate, of a pearly-white dove
Poetry is a land of endless possibilities, of hopes and dreams
Always over-populated, but never bursting at the seams
A land full of everything for which I dance
A world that represents a second chance
It is a land that has no fences, no walls,
A land of rainbows, and endless waterfalls
It helps me calm any fear,
Helps me hold onto those memories which I hold dear
There’s a poet in most all of us
Some of us don’t like it so when she surfaces, we fuss
That is poetry to me,
What is poetry to thee?
