What does your poetry mean to you?

The Cherry Blossoms in Washington, D.C. Beautiful & Meaningful as a Poem

In my poetry, I turn within to my soul, mind, and heart
I give of myself until I am torn apart
Releasing my pain, raw emotion, and sorrow
So I can reach within and find beauty tomorrow
My poetry is everything that I am, have been, will ever be
My poetry is how I live, grow, evolve, and see
