A poem should have a sense of rhyme. It doesn't necessarily NEED one. What it does need, however, Is to ellicit am emotional response. And I have no emotions, Not real ones anyways, Just some behaviors I learned So as to not look like a sociopath. So what do I write about? Love is not poetic. Sadness is not poetic. Beauty is not poetic. Nature is not poetic. What I see as poetry Is how people react To a man beheaded in the street. In some places they see Nothing wrong. It's just another day. Desensitized. Death unrecognized. I find how some people call a dog locked in a car a tragedy, But not a man in the streets Poetic. Maybe it's because a dog is just a dog; Innocent, kindhearted. But human is just a human; Undeserving, vile. People are quick to judge And I find that poetic. I am quick to forgive, We are all JUST human Unaware of true poetry.
