Origin and Meaning of Poetry

Where does my poetry come from?
Mostly my life.
Experiences as a child, a mother, a wife

If any poet tells you, their poems form from a random thought
Should you believe them?
Probably not 

The only thing that comes from nowhere, simply is nothing
All poems have a beginning, they all come from
Something 

Wherever they originate though, from them readers glean
Different life lessons 
as they discern what they do mean

And that is what's fantastic
Nothing is neater
That the meanings are different for each and every reader

    I love this explaination! I sat,and wondered "why am I a poet"? "Where do these words come from"? Now you have shown me a reason. I think? Ha,ha... :o)
