Poetry Is...

Poetry is...

The medium through which I will tell my tragedies
The smiles on my face as stars wink at their beholder
The tears I’ve shed over the plights devouring joy in my life

And it’s what I would give my life to sit down and write

poetry is..

and kind

poetry is...

my best friend
my addiction

poetry is...

beauty caught for the masses
raw love spoken in the language of the angels
my calling

poetry is...
in my veins
elevating me to a higher terrain

poetry is...

the plateau of intellectuals
and the drum of a thousand nations

but most of all
Poetry is life
live it

Greatly enjoyed this; agree with most. I would never say 'the plateau' of anything artistic, or 'of intellectuals' which would eliminate half of the impactive poetry in the world.
