Poetry To Me

Poetry To Me

A Poem by Ntandoyenkosi Ngcobo

When each heart grasps contentment,
When one realizes words are a bonding agent,
That it takes the reality and blends it into need, freedom and a mode of expression,
Expression that allows emotion to flow,
And take each person from the world in which they live to the world where their soul will go,
That is what poetry is to me.

I may not always write correct or pristine,
Sometimes my arrogance can be seen,
I write what I feel and what comes to me,
Allowing someone to take a tour of my entire mind, body and soul
That is what poetry is to me.

Sometimes I do not even write it down,
I just think about it to myself just to hear how it sound,
To let out what is buried deep down inside of me,
That is what poetry is to me.

I do not write about the plants or love ,
My sentences have the tendency to run,
I only write what I know and what I see,
That is what poetry is to me.

I know that nothing I write will be a literary classic,
I know my poems can be a bit bombastic,
They may not be everyone’s cup of tea,
That is what poetry is to me.

To some they are just nonsensical thoughts on a page,
Mindless words written from a lunatic stuck in a cage,
Sometimes no one ever understands them but me,
That is what poetry is to me.

I love this. It is always fun to see poets write a poem with the theme of poets or poetry. It lets us know how you see and feel your writing.
Thank you for sharing.
