What would I have
without poetry?

A small mind,
a dismissed whim,
an unspoken belief,

a reflection in the mirror
of someone I do not know.

real power, very concise. I loved it, and I am sensitive to much of it.
Poetry can definitely help to know the world, and oneself.



The most powerful reaction
of mind on mind
is transference of sight

Who would we truly be, if not poets? Thank you for reading! I'm always grateful!

Poetry is such a great outlet for our emotions and our soul. Sometimes it does one good to constructively purge our thoughts through writing. As always, an elegant, gentle write. Well done.


I agree! Poetry is a wonderful outlet! Sometimes, the BEST outlet!
Thank you for reading!

Poetry clearly demonstrates who we are and how we think.
Short but effective.
