You Are Poetry - Poem by Willian Menuci

Don't you ever let that get into you,
Unspoken lies won't ever come true.
Your eyes are beautiful, believe me when I say
I know you’ll see it, someday
They say you’re a tragedy
But I say you are poetry
Even if you can’t see
Even if it doesn’t seems to be
Believe me
You are poetry.

Don’t you ever be afraid to fly,
Even if they say you can’t, go on, try
Know that, if you fall – yes, perhaps you’ll fall –
Yet, you will have tasted it all,
Remember when they said you couldn’t?
Remember when they said you shouldn’t?
Life can be such an agony
But it can also be
Poetry
Believe me.

I know, you fear to hear they screaming
The same words you’ve been whispering to the wind
To no one,
All alone,
Yes, I can hear
But don’t you dare to fear
They’ve said you couldn’t be free
And I say you are poetry
Can’t you see?
You will see.

The worst lies you’ve been saying to a calm lake
As the pain comes, and you’re about to break
What you see, it’s in your eyes
Lies
Lies!
They’ve said life is an agony,
And it is! The definition of tragedy!
But you, you are poetry.
You are poetry.
