What is Poetry?

What is poetry? Is it a word that describes What you feel or what you think, Written out on a line As if they were the words that you speak? Is it the hug from that person That makes your heart skip a beat, Or the raindrops that hit your nose As you walk down the street? Is it the smile from the stranger That held open the door, Or the feeling of a loved one Coming home from war? Is it the words that you long for When it’s late at night And no words can describe That nothing is right? Is it the sadness that you feel When you have to say goodbye To the person that left In the blink of an eye? Because it is things that we feel And things we can’t ...

Every second is a feeling A feeling that one may feel on a Friday Every minute is worth the wait Every moment takes my breath away Tomorrow is a new day from yesterday Tomorrow is simply not a giveaway Oh, I can’t wait to start that day Each day is a new day, a new day For all the good to come my way For all the bad to fall away For the endless nights to sway To a beautiful melody that keeps me awake A melody that seems it should be on Broadway A new day To see my love, I been dying to see since mid-day Oh, how I miss the feeling of staying in their arms A new day To give a smile to one whose frown can cause rain Oh, how the rain can cause the sky to become gray A new day To love each ...

As the morning begins, so do I I look outside my window, oh where to next? Shall I ever decide? I hear the birds chirp, as moving machines pass my view The smoke seems so dull, dark, and haunting Seems like a poison is about to consume All of the color from up above I look up to the sky, oh it’s full of delight Why would anyone want to ruin a beautiful sight? On the corner of my left eye, I see a stranger A stranger with a smile that shines up like a light But a smile who doesn’t mind to destroy a life. Not a life of a human, but a part of nature’s wonders. He takes the tool of mass destruction, without a doubt He hits the creator of air’s heart, with my own eyes I see it fall Can I put ...

You Don’t Have to Know

What if I told you You don’t have to know What you’re doing Or where you’re going, That your life isn’t written out on a line, And the things that you feel Don’t have to rhyme. Life is full of hellos, And full of goodbyes, But don’t let difficult times Make life pass you by. It might be hard, You might feel lost, But let down your guard, At such a small cost, Just to know That you’ll never be alone.  ...

In darkness She found comfort By the light of the moon, That helped her find hope That late night in June.

I promise, You’re not the things that broke you, Or the things that didn’t work out, All the tears you cried When you’ve been filled with doubt. You’re the smile on your face, The dimples in your cheek Every hello That you breathe, To all the strangers that you meet. You’re all the times You held your head high, And all the times You’ve had to say goodbye. You’re made of so much beauty, But you always forgot When you said That you’re defined By all the things you’re not.  ...
