  1. To me poetry means to kind of get the point across. Like how you feel, or what kind of things you want to do in life. Poetry is very wonderful for me so I write poetry everyday.

  2. Poetry can from the herat. Poetry is what you are feeling. Like you Can write when your happy sad mad. THAT’S want i think poetry is.

  3. Poetry can be a lot of different things . It can be fictional or non-fictional . You can make it up or write about how you really feel . Poetry has no limits because its based on emotions that you feel on a day to day basis .

  4. Poetry to me is telling someone how you feel about somthing. It shows how you are feeling about a certain thng , it exspresses what you really feel like. Poetry sounds like words that you would say to someone you love . I love poetry but i domt really understand what it means at times , i dont know how to write but i will learn

  5. What poetry means to me is {EXASPERATION}!!!!! I say that because poetry inspire me to right more and more about it.Poetry is like ways too exspress how you are feeling in that type of manner. (:

  6. Poetry!!!!!!!!!
    I LOVE all types of Poetry
    Their so emotional and if I could read it all day I would
    Poetry to me is a way to express yourself
    Without any one giving a care
    The best thing about poetry to me is that …….it does not have to rhyme
    That is a good thing on my part because I’m not good at rhyming
    ~BC 😉

  7. Poetry to me means to pour all of your feelings/inspirations into a cup for your audience/reader to drink/understand the things you feel.

  8. If poetry was a flower, each petal would be unique
    If poetry was a taste, it would taste so sweet
    If poetry was a person, she’d inspire the people who meet
    If poetry was everything around us,
    It would bring passion from hatred to the love we seek

    Poetry bring tears, laugher, and passion
    Poetry bring words that can’t be rationed
    Poetry can be small, little, but big,
    While showing the pain from a mother’s dying kid

    It may be hateful, but it brings love
    It may be short, but it says so much
    It may be different, but we understand
    Look deep into your hurt and there it will stand

  9. Well, to me poetry can be anything. It can be based off mood or tone. It’s just an expression of whatever you’re thinking about at the time, or can sometime be written into lyrics.

  10. What poetry represents to me is the decribeing of feeling. It is you putting feeeling into word in the form of a poetry. It help me express my feeling, even though I don’t know ho wto write a poem.

  11. poetry is like pouring your life,feelings,mind,and inspiration into a cup for your reader/audience to sip.And to express how you feel without actually saying it.

  12. Freedom of speech, its emotions, feelings, words thats represent how you feel about someone or something.
    LOVE
    HATE
    SAD
    HAPPY
    FORGIVING
    DECITE
    REMEMBERFUL
    and best of all MAGICAL!!!!!!!

  13. Poems or peotry can express your emotions. To me peotry means bringing life into your writing, and being spritual about curten subjects that you hardly ever talk about. Poetry gives you the oppertunutie to express youself in writing.
    Idon’t recall poetry being MAGICAL but it’s curtenly AMAZING!
    🙂

  14. Poetry is feeling emotion but not only that much more such as story telling writing about things you love like music it could be something as simple as sharing something you have experienced

  15. poetry to me means sending a message in a different way that people may not understand but, eventually will get. poetry can tell a story or just trying to say something.

  16. What poetry means to me is that it can describe mostly anything such as lost love, hatred, compassion. It we put our mind to it we can write really good ” POETRY”.

  17. TO ME POETRY ISNT NESSESARALY EXPRESSING ABOUT HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT SOMEONE. IT CAN BE ABOUT MANY DIFFERENT THINGS LIKE THE WEATHER, SHOES, SCHOOL, ALL THAT STUFF. I SAY THAT BECAUSE EVERYTIME YOU WRITE POETRY SOMEONE IS ALWAYS ASKING YOU WHO IT’S ABOUT. I MEAN COME ON REALLY WHY IS THAT THE FIRST THING THAT COMES OUT OF YOUR MOUTH..?? THATS ALL I HAVE TO SAY I GET ON HERE EVERY ORANGE MOON SO ITS GONNA BE A WHILE BEFORE I GET BACK ON!!!!!!

  18. In my eyes poetry is a way to express yourself without given away what the real problem is about your situation. the thing about ity is people have to dig deep inside if they want to find the information in the text.

  19. I Think Poetry Is About Anything From Anybody Point Of View. Poetry Is Based Off Tone, Mood, Actions, And Reactions. But For Me Poetry Means a lot ,Because I Love Writing Poetry That’s One Of My Favorite Things To Do. : )

  20. Poetry is expressive! You can just open the flood gates of your emotions and let it spill an on a sheet of paper.

  21. To me poetry is expressing your feelings,and telling people your opinion.Choosing a good topic to speak on so that you can be creative and let your words flow.I cant describe poetry in one word because I feel as though there are so many words to describe poetry. I like the poems we read in class because they all taught me a lesson and I got a good message out of every single one we read.

  22. poetry
    what is poetry
    writing,feeling,expressions,igniting
    your thoughts on to a paper
    words flowing through and out as they prosper
    your hand flying so weightlessly
    as it were moving across the sky
    so helplessly
    as more and more develop you start to attach
    cant let go because you know the perfect match
    poetry is inspirational,sensational, and beautiful
    anybody who knows this are truly worthy of

    • I love yours too, its very expressive. Looks like i have good competition for the Poetry Slam, can’t wait for te challenge. Good Luck and your poem wa really good!!!

  23. To me poetry is expressing your feelings,and telling people your opinion.Poetry is feeling emotion but not only that much more such as story telling writing about things you love like music it could be something as simple as sharing something you have experiencedyor feelings when you have no body to talk to.

  24. THIS POERTY YOU SPEAK OF ITS LINGERING TOUCH SHOWS ITS TRUE MEANING.I feel engaged like its moving me, but its not just the peice of the ocean but the whole sea. As if a poem can install trust or faith, but the ability to encounter a new roll play in life. It must be an emotional train of thoughts going into a poem so we can receive and believe. We all know now where it comes from the base of our hearts. Just as if it is an instrument it gives us knowledge of the way we read and write .

  25. poetry is peace at it’s best . It is really just emotionall writing, people putting there thoughts on paper
