How Times Change

I never used to like poems

I didn't understand the point

of rhyming,

or the beat of the words

and the timing.

Poems were just used at school

written on and talked about.

Essays

over analysed and laughed about;

teachers giving fake praise.

Time went by and I left school

Poems faded away,

ignored,

chapters and stories filled its place,

until one day, when bored...

Pen on paper, words in ink

Rhyming, Timing, stanza's

beats

poems suddenly became more

than just marks on sheets

I never used to like poems

but now they are my love

For

they are personal, emotional

beautiful. They are something I adore.

The End
