Poems Ain'T No Art

You say your big words
You take your time
You find a reason
Then make the rhyme
But is it worth it?
Ain't poems just a thing?
You talk about love
You talk about things
But there ain't nothin' there
But the thoughts in your head
And the words in the air
Poems ain't no art
They're just a thing
Just a simple happening
A sudden occurence
That steadily dies
As countless interpreters
Rip and tear the damn thing to pieces
Looking for reason
Looking for rhyme
But there ain't nothin to 'em
They're just little things
Little thoughts
So shut up and read 'em

    Poems are something, they are the physical manifestation of one's emotions, our inner feelings. Everyone express themselves their own unique way, some draw, some sing, some cry, and then there is those that write. It doesn't have to rhyme, it doesn't even have to make sense to anyone else. It only has to make sense to our own hearts...
