Find the Poet

Find the poet
the one who’ll say,
“This is how it is,
I’ll show you a way
to condense emotions,
diverse and vast,
encompass the future,
consider the past.
I’ll take you
on a journey,
bring your mind
to mine, together
we may find,

Not necessarily
the same thing,
but isn’t that what poetry
has the power to bring.
Exploration of thought,
feelings shared, explained,
nothing held back, refrained,
just real and raw.

Telling it like it is.

Showing the weakness
against the strength,
exploring rhyme, rhythm,
craftsmanship, line length.

Tuning into the sounds
of others tuned in,
knowing the songs to
take you within,
into the place

where creation begins”.
