Beauty is everywhere.A Lesson by Radioactive
We see what others can't.
There is nothing that really separates a poet from the rest of the world, other than the fact that they write poetry. However, for those of us who can say that we are poets, there is a certain feeling of knowing that you are a poet. Maybe others can tell, but it doesn't matter, because we know that we are poets.
We see beauty in a world lacking in beauty. Anyone can write a poem about something extreme—love and death are two of the most common poem topics, but who can write about an old pair of sneakers and make everything sound fresh and beautiful without loosing it's personal touch? A poet.
Beautiful poems aren't made by taking something beautiful and putting pen on paper. Beauty in poetry is making up words to fill gaps; seeing things in a light that doesn't even exist; looking through the eyes of a person who never walked on this earth and never will. It surrounds us, but not in pictures, in words.
