So I am really new at this poetry game
by maggie signaigo
shouldn't the end of each line sound the same?
It seems harder that way to find a word
to say what you feel or what you want heard.
But I see different efforts posted on here
just thoughts and feelings...isn't that queer?
But then I thought no...it's maybe just me
like I said I am new...I probably don't see
that poetry is feelings and inner expressions
Why for a rhyme should we all make concessions?
If you write from your heart or to those you love
the words matter less than the message does.
So that's what I think this is really all about
identifying your feelings and getting them out.
So others understand what you're trying to say
forget about the rules...your emotions obey.
So that's what I did in this work of prose
just some basic reassurance to all of those
who can't find a word to rhyme with oranges
express yourself clearly...you're poets aren't ya's?
