The special gift

writing a poem isnt that hard 
just write what you feel straight from your heart 

all you have to do is sit back and think for a minute 
dig around inspiration and grab whats in it 

remember the thoughts that swim in your head 
and intricately weave them on paper like thread 

and with each thought that you write down 
remember that feeling is key when emotion is bound 

the flow from a poem is like the flow from your heart 
conveying emotions and thoughts like a painting in art 

if it wills you to do so use instinct instead 
let your senses be your guide for the thoughts in your head 

you can even reach deeper into your subconscious mind 
and write about dreams and visions in time 

poetry is a gift that only man can convey 
and no other species can express it this way
