In Poetry

For whatever reason we write
Bright of day dark of night

The salty taste of a single tear
The love of one we hold so dear

The ever-changing cycle of seasons
Friends lost for various reasons

The ups, downs, highs and lows
The oh my God here she goes

The, I love her and she loves him
The shadow with an evil grin

The load that is too great to bear
Those who do and do not care

I have pondered the reason why
Poets share the tears they cry

Poets share their brightest days
Poets share their darkest ways

Poets offer their hearts and souls
All their failures and all their goals

Poets just like you and I
Feathers falling from the sky

Floating softly to the ground
We take our voice and write it down

Write it down for the world to see
The answers are found in poetry

    This poem is so beautiful. You are so talented. I have read all of your poetry and it all moved me. I really admire how you have overcome adversity and keep your head held up. Its hard to do. Life goes on and we yank ourselves up by the boot straps and keep going. A fellow poet who has felt pain.

    Hello Mike, I really like this rhyming couplet poem. One may find a lot of golden nuggets in each line. I like the flow of each from beginning to end and the message each contains. I can see wonderful images also. Great job! ~Joseph
