“My ability to see another view
Make this uncanny connection to that individuals problem
Makes me special.”
Poetry is the art of looking within, seeing into the soul of the writer, seeing into their world
The connection you make by getting the outside view
I make by being inspired from a hug that’s strong and tight, an emotion, a set of three words,
Seeing the news, and hearing people go off on political rants.
Talking about things they know little about because they only care to scratch the surface
Where you find the solution, the right words to say
I find a new line, a new poem, a new look into the human beauty that is the world, that is the problem itself.
Where there is despair, anger, confusion, and many other conflicting emotions there is beauty as well.
“There is beauty in the breakdown.” (FROU FROU)
You make the connection to the individual problem
Make the connection to the individual’s feelings
Where your words are used for advice
Used to smooth over an issue
Mine are used to pierce the heart
Used to leave you breathless if only for a moment
See we poets listen and listen closely to what’s said in between the lines of your words
We listen for the hidden message the one that says, silently, “ I still care.”
I still care
When all words fail and the argument, no matter how frivolous, just can't be solved or put to rest
Remember this, I still care
Maybe we need a mediator
A person who has the ability to see both sides and can come to a solution
That we are apparently too blind to see
And when we go our separate ways
I'll still paint you a thousand pictures made only of words
And I’ll hang them up on your walls and tie them to your tree limbs
I'll make your body my canvas
These words will pierce your heart
Those pictures I made for you will leave you breathless
If only for a moment or two
You may have the right words
A way to see the solution
The ability to connect to an individuals problem
But I... Have a talent with words.
I can connect with emotions
Pierce hearts and leave people breathless
What makes me special is that my talent is a dying breed, that I am a poet
