Though I am only 17, my heart has words to share, I believe to be very beneficial to all who read them.
I believe poetry is best written from the heart rather than the head. When written from the heart the words are like the water from a spring, cold, fresh and, clear. Unscathed by the blemishes of the fallacious mind. Untarnished by the thoughts of reason and rational thinking. For poetry is meant to stir up emotion not settle them. Poetry must be bold, willing to be truthful no matter the out come. Poetry is an expression of one's true feelings not the lies that reason has to offer, in pursuit of maintaining the composed appearance of reality when the factual reality is cold and harsh with ups and downs, turns and swerves and on occasion circles, but rather the feelings beneath the cover of reason.
That is what poetry is.
I am a woman who appreciates good words from the heart. I love people and love life.
