Her Poetry

Post date: Jun 15, 2014 7:29:48 PM

This poem was written by me, and was dedicated to my sister. I presented it to her on her birthday because she needed to know how much her poetry inspires me. It portrays all of the things I've learned from, not only her poetry but from her. She is the best, and so I wrote this for her :

She speaks

There is silence in the audience

Not a word, not even a peak

I'd tell you that she's magical

But you'd think it's because she's blood related

Or because she has never hated who I am

She starts by telling us her name

Nice to meet you

And suddenly, everyone becomes tame

Because they've heard her before and they know she's more than great

Her first sentence

Catches you, grabs you by the neck

To tell you " Listen up man, I've got something to say "

Whether it's a reality check

Or a poem about trust

Or warning you kids that you must

Believe in what those blank minded people never believed in

That what you do with life

Is your decision

She teaches you to trust your religion

And to believe in peace and harmony

So stop what you're doing and see what I see

The power of her words

Can change your world

No matter who you are or who you want to be

Listening to her poetry can change you and me

Line after line

Each time she says a rhyme

It all makes sense in my mind

They all have so much meaning

But what I love the most is the way she says them

I mean you've got to give her some credit

More than 25 poems not a single stutter

Her flouncy makes me want to be her poetry

Because it takes an artist to move a crowd

But it takes a genius to make them scream out loud

She ends her piece

Therefore silence strikes once more

No one knows if they should clap or cry like they never did before

Because every single word she says deserves an award

Not just one from the store

But one that's carved and hand made like her poems themselves

Those poems took you somewhere else

A place where it's okay to be yourself

Well that's about it. I hoped you enjoyed this poem because my sister's tears showed that she did. If you'd like me to post more of my poems every week, then tell in the comment section below. Plus, remember that life is nothing without a little poetry!
