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.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,

The work we choose should be our own,
