Poetry has given me wings to fly
Poetry has given me a path to ply
Poetry makes words look like I fry
Poetry helps, with my words, never to pry
Poetry, often, makes me feel to cry
When all my muse, sometimes feels dry

Poetry has been a reason to feel ‘high’
Poetry, to God, has made me draw nigh
Poetry has made friends to keep saying, “Hi”
Poetry, sometimes makes me wanna shout, “Kai !”

Poetry has made me more careful of word use
Knowing that an account I shall give to God for all my word use
Poetry, restores my muse
To poetry I pledge never to be a breaker of truce
To very far and wide regions, poetry shall make me cruise

Poetry gives me directions
Poetry, to my life, helps make corrections
Poetry, to everything in me, has made resurrections
Poetry gives me hope of greater manifestations

Poetry takes me to countries overseas
Without crossing the seas
Poetry takes me to other continents
Without leaving my continent
Poetry makes me feel content
Without any form of contempt

I love you all and I don’t pretend
I know you’ve got my back and me, you shall defend

Poetry brings me friends who’re the greatest
Poetry helps me hook up with the bold, beautiful, even the fairest
Now everyone around calls me dearest
Thank you, fellow poets, you’re the kindest.
Our peak surpasses Mount Everest.

These and more are what poetry means to me, what’s poetry to you?
