Poets are the most emotional beings on the planet.
They are easily hurt, easily excited.
Easily broken, easily motivated.
They love easily,
And, to hate, respond equally.
Poets love to have fun,
Yet sometimes do run
back to the quiet place they usually hide.
They are not easily understood,
But they understand every single tune,
that life decides to play for you.
Poets love to read;
and to be read,
They like to decipher every line that they see;
They know the importance of words;
And how words can shape the world.
They have the power to settle disputes
And bring peace and harmony.
They have the power to raise objections
And help those being treated unfairly.
At some point they can seem perfect,
But life teaches them to be circumspect.
They know the definition of every idea,
But ask them about the meaning of love
And all they would produce for you are poems, with varied emotions.
