thoughts of a poet -------------------------------------------
how is it
that some poets can write excellent writes
when it doesnt take much thinking
while for others it takes forever
how is it
that a poet can put thoughts into words
when others sometimes cant
and they dont know how to use words like that?
how is it
that a poet can express their feelings
with words no one else could use
and have people understand
how is it possible
that poets can write what they do
when other people dont know how to write?
is it possible
to call everyone a poet
when poetry is usually thoughts
just some people dont know how to write them?
I thought it was fine too. I might not have as many questions due to the fact that my professor gave me crap about rhetorical questions, but I think it's more or less a personal choice. you have given us things to think about here and I enjoyed reading it.
I'm sorry, I didn't like this. It reminded me of something I would write in elemntary school. It's just the "how come" at the start. I think maybe you should change that. I did like the last line though, because it showed honesty.
I like your peom. I like how you use the same thought each stanza. The title also caught my eye because before I clicked it it made me wonder if maybe it was some of the same thoughts that I had thought also. And as I read it I realized they were. All poets can understand these certain things better then others but others can understand things that we may never know. I hope you continue writing and I will most pleased to read more of your work.- Chelsea
I found this quite interesting actually and they are kind of the thoughts that come into my mind when I see everyone my age in school or whatever, and they'll be like: 'hey, he can write really well' and I'll be left thinking 'why am i so special.' But, I guess that's just a gift of somekind and the strength of mind, when it comes down to expressing feelings.
To be honest, I would like to see some 'proper' (I say that but don't really mean it) poetry from you as you seem to have a lot to say, both on here and AIM too. Even though this was very thought provoking and is all true.
how is it that a poet can put thoughts into words when others sometimes cant, only because they donít know the right words to use. just a though i came up with for that 2nd stanza. i dont really know what else you can do. well talk to you later lia
Well this is definately [sp!?] true. It's strange how some people can do these things whilst others cannot. Such as I've tried my hand at composing music. I can't do it, except when I sit on the piano; I can play tunes everyone likes limited by the skill I possess. I can't do it, but others can do it on the spot. And to write something like you did, I admire the fact that you took time out of everything to contemplate that this is how things are. And why it is so. It's so very true. ~Spire~
i have to say that i really liked this because i have thought that same thing many of times. the second stanza last line i think could use a little re write it just sounds a little off to me but that could just be me. other than that this was a great piece for the content and subject manner . great job lia
Well, if someone doesn't like this poem they can just screw themselves. I thought it was very cool. I often think the same things. Why can some people express their feelings and others just cant? I always get mad at my husband because he does not know hwo to express himself very well. I am always so out there with my expressions and he is blank. There are times when he doesn't understand what I am talking about. LOL Anyways, great job! *Amanda*
