Let Me Tell You What A Poem Brings

Rating: 5.0

Before you go further,
let me tell you what a poem brings,
first, you must know the secret, there is no poem
to speak of, it is a way to attain a life without boundaries,
yes, it is that easy, a poem, imagine me telling you this,
instead of going day by day against the razors, well,
the judgments, all the tick-tock bronze, a leather jacket
sizing you up, the fashion mall, for example, from
the outside you think you are being entertained,
when you enter, things change, you get caught by surprise,

your mouth goes sour, you get thirsty, your legs grow cold

when you enter, things change, you get caught by surprise, your mouth goes sour, you get thirsty, your legs grow cold standing still in the middle of a storm, A poem of excellence, amazed at the way you dealt with this theme. Thanks for the sharing. 10 for it. Regards. Subhas

Trying to figure out what a poem means, in the state of confusion so many thoughts crossing the mind. Nice poem.

Can someone explain the message please? Can someone please help me and explain the message here. Let me try, even without saying in so many words, or rather while the poet said a lot of things, what he perhaps meant is: it is not so much what you say in a poem, as it is' how, but then well, I am too trying in dark, not being familiar with this genre. But the poem has made a lot of readers busy on their wings of imagination, and that is what a poem is. Any one else?
