    sup fam i appreciate the replies as usual just in case you didn't catch it i wrote a poem called untitled if you would check it out and see if you can find a title for it. this is a personal favorite hope you like.

    -What is Poetry?-

    Poetry is words of life
    My tears, scars, and strife
    I live through words and words live through me, constantly battling the irony of life and its daily contradictions
    What does poetry really mean?
    Whatever it may be...as long as the words can be felt, heard, or seen.

    Poetry is to diverse to be singled out
    Underscribable...
    Similar to your pen wanting to shout
    Poetry is needed...
    Needed like beauty needing grace so it can be one, like day needing the light to produce the sun.

    The birth and rebirth of life
    Oh, there is not death because poetry is never-ending as long as expression and thought are continualling blending
    Poetry is me, Poetry is the purpose of me.

    If we have feelings we have poetry
    If we have life we have poetry
    Because poetry is nothing without you.
