WHAT IS: A POEM

What is a poem?

Is it an artistic representation

Or just some fancy words

Split across weird line breaks?

 

What is a poem?

Is it a rhythmic ensemble

Or some emotional preamble

Meant to intensify how things are spoken?

 

What is a poem?

Is it meant to incite fear

Or love, or hate, or passion

In ways we don’t normally imagine?

 

What is a poem

But a group of words,

Made to make us accept

Things that are absurd.

 

What is a poem

But an extension of self,

Meant to present

Our mind’s great wealth.

 

Hey everyone,

 

I just kinda put this together off the top of my head. I’ve never been to great a rhyming, but I’ve got a little bit of that in here. The more I do it, the easier it gets. I kinda like how this has some of the tropes of poetry. But it really is just sprung from my mind. Let me know what you think! Have a great weekend!
