What Fires Me Up To Write Poetry?

 

So what fires me up to write poetry?

(We all go through this at some time)

What causes that itch to take pen up

Convert mind's ideas into rhyme?

 

Doesn't matter be it prose be it rhyming

Poetry has it's own unique way

Of expressing our hopes, thoughts and feelings

Than other written forms of today

 

There's something about poetry which attracts me

Words, ideas skilfully intertwined

Designed to pull out ones emotions

Poetry, yes, you're refined

 

So what fires me up to write poetry?

Things I might hear, I might see

It gives me enjoyment and pleasure

But it's not just for me, it's for we.

Well expressed!! Much of it holds true for us. And sure poetry is for us n not jus for me or I.
