SWIPE RIGHT FOR A POEM ;) →
i started writing poetry four years ago when i realised that people are more than the thoughts they think. they are feelings and wonder and adventures before the sun sets and rises.
i never understood poetry until i realised that every word we utter has to be said back, poetry taught me that.
poetry became my teacher through thick and thin. it was always there for me, offering a warm hand to hold on the coldest of days, wrapping me up in its safety and comforting me within it's grasp.
poetry taught me that just because there are humans, doesn't mean there is humanity. and poetry taught me that seeing the worst in people doesn't mean you can't see their best. poetry also taught me that living with expectations is no ones fault. that you don't get a choice in who hurts you and why they hurt you. poetry gives no chances and leaves no wonder in the hearts of the vulnerable and broken. poetry taught me that even when people hurt people, it's okay to forgive and let go.
poetry taught me that this world is a poet, and people are its poetry. - [nostalgic and nonsensically sensical] s.mc
