My Poem “Give Poetry a Chance”
Some things seem unacessible to some people from the outside looking in... some people have preconceptions about some things... something can sound harder to grasp than it actually is... people do not know what they are missing until they give something a go and they find themselves being changed by the experience. Some people say that they are simple and predictable - however, in reality, everybody is capable of surprising others... some things that happen in life feel like something out of a dream, because they do not make sense... some people can look at a priceless piece of art and feel daunted by its simplicity, as well as by its obvious complexity, that they find themselves feeling feelings they have never felt before... some people sometimes can not put into words what a poem, a painting, a sculpture, a photograph, a film, a book is doing to them subconsciously - but they know that no matter what they do, and where they go next, their perception of the world will forever be changed. Some things we find at the same time that they find us... some people sometimes want what others have - but there is always a reason why some things come easy to some people, and not to others, that is out of most of our hands... some things never stop being a rejuvenating source... some people do not always know what they want, nor what they need, until someone gives them a gift - and sometimes within the magic words of a poet readers can be given a blessing that is so special it is meant to last. So, if you ever need energy, insight, wisdom, beauty - then you need only give poetry a chance.
