Writing Prompt #19

What are some things you can express through poetry that you can’t express in another writing format?

The emotions I can express through poetry is priceless

You don’t know how much I love this

The day to day shit I take

I can let it out on the mic

It’s literally therapeutic

This notepad is my couch

And the poetry that leaves my mouth

Bounces off the walls like a bouncy house

As it enters the minds of everyone in the room and they can finally feel what I feel

I finally can drop the shield

I can finally speak without trying to be this man of steel

I can finally be real

I can finally let the world in on how I feel

Instead of putting up this persona that I am made of steel

That’s what poetry allows me to do

I can write phony story with different characters but how would you know it’s really from the heart

When these words sing from my soul

It takes a different kind of toll

On me it makes me feel whole
