And before our world goes over the brink,
Teach the believers how to think.








-Philip Appleman


All of us are poets,
When we say what we mean.
When we say it
And it brings a tear to the scene,
In the eye of a lover,
Or makes an old man smile:
We are speaking poetry.

Making us human.
Exposing our feelings.
Showing what we are
And nothing else-
Good or poor, cheap or lavish,
Our poems are us and,
Surely, we are them.

All is always true
That true poetry sings,
And mine, like all,
Says something.

It says you have a nice personality, because you're your poem which is wonderful.
