This is Your Poem


This is your poem

And you chose the theme

The flow, the meaning

The end and the beginning

This is your poem

Your time of revival

The truest of your friends

Flat and open on paper

You are the God

Who can chose to be a joker

You are the mask

Which can hide a barrage of tears

You are the ceiling

In your own house of mirrors


You can choose what to achieve

And which dream to realize

Which fantasy to revisit

Which door to enter

You can decide which word to abandon

And which one to pimp


You are the poet

This is your poem

There is no watching you smile

And no one is here to ask you to die

You are the thief

And you are the jailer


This is your poem

And you have left it to yourself

To find yourself

In what will soon belong to everyone

Beautifully flowing write and I love the lines
You are the ceiling

Hmmm... interesting. Not sure how I fel about this one if I'm being honest. Most of it seems a bit sparce and almost cliche. However, the last stanza should be a piece all it's own. The last four lines of this are incredibly powerful...

Interesting read. It offers a new twist on being a poet. Creative!

a simple truth, put rationally and slightly exaggerated at the same time but that's what captures your attention

Posted 9 Years Ago

Very interesting concept and excellent execution. I like the 'freedom of expression' sort of inspiration behind it
