Big, intelligent eyes
Taking in all their surroundings

Memorizing
How things feel

Quiet mouths
But loud in their confident stance

A sense of maturity
Surrounding them

Telling people
“Shhhush! I’m trying to write!”

Giving friends
Life advice

And most of all
They are the troubled ones

That boy without a mom
That depressed girl
That *** girl with homophobic parents
That boy stuck in a girls body
That girl with anxiety
That boy who gets picked on every day

In their hearts
There is true poetry
For they have felt true pain

Poets know disappointment
They know heartbreak
They know
Not to get their hopes up
There is a poet in everyone
For everyone has known pain
Sometime in their life

Everyone
Is
A
Poet
Anyone can be a poet, whether they have a place to write it or not.
