What Poetry Is


Poetry is giving Life the foundation to
Sustain it's self, to give Life the water for
Growth.

Poetry is showing Life all of what the
World is like, to show Life how to
Survive.

Poetry is explaining to Life that the
Smallest details make all the difference,
To explain to Life, Life isn't Life without
Living.

Poetry then tells Life to Live.

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
