Poetry is Therapeutic

Poetry is Therapeutic

It’s therapeutic, to express vulnerability and strength

Anger and pain with warm fuzzes at length

Painting a picture of feelings in words

That is relaxing, some think is absurd

 

Banging on a typewriter to get the feelings out

Think of all the emotion to express and to shout

That’s the joy of typing to get words on the page

Documenting thoughts and day dreams in the present age

 

To be carefree about poetry as thoughts flash in my mind

To share the feeling the life that is mine

Documenting thoughts as they’re pulled from the air

Some are resentful of the thoughts that we share

 

To be discreet about poetry like silence of pain

Express it in words, it is to our gain

Banging on a typewriter to get the emotion out

That’s communication what therapy is about

 

It’s therapeutic, to express vulnerability and strength

What makes us tick, our personality, at length

Documenting thoughts as they pull from the air

Understanding myself, a thought to share
