What's a poem?

How do you write a poem?

It's not very plain to see

Some believe they can do it

Others just weren't meant to be

But what really is a poem?

Is it a story that you tell?

A little piece of yourself you hide

In every rhyming spell

But what makes a poem a poem?

That ones plain to see

It's an expression of your self through words

A way to free yourself can't you see
