poet’s expression

Storytellers with glorified lines

Words come together sometimes

With reason and no rhyme

For poets, expression is not a crime

Your word selection…Your Voice

Free Verse that’s another choice

A completed thought…let’s rejoice

A pouring out is not by force

Though the heart feels compelled

It frees the soul to touch, taste and tell

The testimony of victory or pain

A poet’s story is more important than fame

  1. I like this 🙂 Especially this part:
    “For poets, expression is not a crime

    Your word selection…Your Voice

    Each poet expresses themselves differently, but what’s most important is the story within it 🙂

  2. I love the last line especially..A poet is compelled by himself or herself to write poetry..not for fame and fortune, but to use this gift and share it with others, hopefully bridging the divide with poems that touch others and cause a positive effect just by sharing their history and their thoughts.
