Lines, rhymes, stanzas and breaks
Meters, pentameters, verses and
Most importantly words
Create an image the poet is trying to portray.
Poets pour their life, hopes, dreams and experiences onto paper
And people read and interpret what they see.
Even though it may not be what they are supposed to see.
Poems are open ended
They are filled with emotion
But every person lives a different life
And that emotion can be taken in any direction.
Poetry is up to the reader
The poet gives a foundation for readers to start with
The real power behind the poem is up to them.
Poetry can be fun and upbeat like Doctor Seuss
Or filled with despair and sorrow like Edgar Allan Poe.
There is a poem for every mood and moment
Because it all depends on you.
