Your Heart - Poem by Shannon Lasater

My word are from my heart, not from a text book. These words I get, I could never get from a text book or a class, and you could never teach me something that's already in my heart, these words that are in my heart, racing out onto this page, typing as fast as my little hands could go, to try to keep up with the words that r in my heart. It's like how I ride my horse, it's my high, listening to the thoundering of hooves, the rythem of her body when she runs, wind rushing past your ears, the pant of her breath, listening to my heart race, its like we're one, inhale when she inhales, exhale when she exhale, matching her body's rythem, this is my high and this is my heart. You cant go to a class and learn how to talk through your heart, you just have to listen hard enough, and not be afraid to say what your heart is saying. Somebody cant tell you what you hear from your heart, the only person who can is yourself, dont let anyone tell you different. Be good to yourself and your heart, and speak what your heart is saying, and be happy and live life to the fullest.

    Those lines are my ''high'' for today. your words are having the power to say something different in a very different way. I like this line so much :
    '' these words that are in my heart, racing out onto this page'', It really describes how POETRY spark to attract us.
