(Witnessing) Poetry

Daily Prompt: Witness

Poetry

Some see it as merely a way to get emotions out

down on paper and to never be mentioned again.

Some see it as a mere hobby,

something to do when feeling bored or artistic.

But what people of these thoughts don’t know

is that poetry is a way of life.

 

It’s more than using fancy similies and metaphors

it’s having a unique perspective

of the world and its situations

and expressing it in the most

creative way possible with using

these precious tools: words.

 

Words don’t just communicate to the mind

but to the heart. They can lift a spirit

within seconds and forever enlighten a soul.

Once one has witnessed being immersed in this beautiful art

there is no escaping it nor the desire to.
