What is Poetry

As I placed my pen upon the paper

I wrote not what I willed, but what I thought

What is poetry

Am I a poet

Or just a rambling fool

It is more than just words

It has to be

You place all your

Heart and soul;

Joys and sorrows;

Hopes and dreams;

Fears and woes;

Pleas and cries;

All, you place all

So truly what is poetry

Is it an escape of mind

Or a release of the soul
