    POETRY

    Instantanious spiritual combustion.
    Compelled me to follow my hearts instruction,
    And flow with this new found inspiration.
    Though not power sufficient to move this nation,
    this motivation was suitible for me,
    To ripen poetry that fell from me like fruit from a tree,
    And now i sit here alone, though not lonely,
    With presences in my mind of those who flowed powerfully,
    Lyrically, poetically.

    Langston Hughes lives in me,
    tupac Lives in me,
    nas lives in me,
    emily dickinson lives in me,
    maya angelou, Nikki giovani,Homer,Shakespear,Paul Lawrence DUnbar
    Edgar Allen Poe, I dont care-
    MOTHER GOOSE
    DOCTOR SEUSE-
    All the prominent poets of history
    Live in ME.
    They All exist within.
    My mind body and soul procreate through a monumentous menage a trois
    And behold, born is a beautiful child.
    Named Poetry.
    Myself, knowing me, easily
    I can percieve why poetic verse completely
    Eases my whole being.

    Its like I can see but had previously been a stranger to sight.
    Like I could try with all my might,
    To move mountains- to calm raging ocean waves to dim the sun
    and it would be no QUESTION that i would emerge victorious-
    second to NONE.
    I feel like i can be content with the future to come,
    Because I was true to me in this poetry,
    Because I truly know myself
    And because I know i can love no1 else
    How i love me.

    Can't you see?
    This poetry to me
    serves the same purpose as therapy.
    It soothes soul, body and mind.
    In no other realm of life could I find
    Something that makes me feel so...
    I dont know how to explain it.
    It makes me feel so... RIGHT!
    SO ALIVE!
    so FREE!
    I would never know this feeling if i had never discovered
    This mental and spiritual phenomenon known to be
    POETRY. ​

    And thank goodness you found it, because one of your talents would certainly be wasted. Loved the rhyme scheme, your explanation of how poetry uplifts a poet...just, everything.
