I write


Poetry is in my blood
I consider it as food
Ingredient for nourishment
For some important movement

Poems are my weakness
I find them on my face
In my fingers
To appear

It flows
And allows
Words to express
In clear terms

It may lack many things
Poems after all present something
It may convince even mighty person
He will think and find reason

I write and forget
Float the idea and let
Readers to judge
The message

    A poem about writing, why people write and the enjoyment of writing, which as he describes is natural.

    Joshua FordLess than a minute ago
    ' I write' is a simple poem with a clear meaning, describing how natural poetry is to him, comparing to being a part of him as his body. There are five stanzas with four lines each and there is a near rhyming pattern of a, a, b, b, which gives the poem structure. At times i feel like he has forced words in to fit, or either chosen words merely on their accessibility to the poem, than the actual creative and moral effect. At times it loses interest and is hard to understand. The imagery is very good, using metaphors to get the message it across. The poem was good and the meaning was very clear. :) (Report) Reply
