This piece is called “Poet Tree”. The purpose of this piece is to describe what poetry is for. I included this piece because it describes how I use and what I use poetry for. The content of this piece makes me proud because it expresses how I feel. I realized that I use poetry for more than just an outlet, I also write it for fun and as a hobby.

Tears you shed

Smiles you had

Times you were happy or sad

Memories both good and bad

Setting goals

Food for the soul

The key to the heart

In many lives it plays a huge part

Things we believe

The emotions we receive

When you need someone to talk to

When you need someone to listen to you

Poetry doesn’t have to be perfect

Every piece of the puzzle doesn’t have to fit
