The Young Poets (Poetry)

“The Young Poets” is a poem about young poets finding themselves through their words.

Words can be mysteries
They can be foreign sounds
That bewilder the mind
Yet, are how we best can share
The wishes and dreams
That we keep deep down
To tell lies we wished
And dreamed could be true

The young poets among us
Seek for freedom to say
What needs to be said
Even if that was not
The original purpose
Just to create and breathe
Life into the mundane
To fill the empty moments

I wish to free myself
As many others have
To use this voice
Forgetting rhyme and meter
Set aside conventions 
From what I may write
Believe what you may
It can be what you want it to be

All the young poets
Must unite in purpose
Unique voices 
Even considering
The same themes
To let go of fear
Of misunderstanding
And of judgment 

To the young poets 
I have to say
Never lose 
The innocence
The wonder
Keep wishing 
Keep dreaming 
And, the poems will come
