Poetry is to imagine
Poetry isn’t about what you write, it doesn’t even need to be about what you feel. Poetry is about what you imagine. It is an urge of self-expression. It is a sequence of words streaming out, tired of being contained inside.
It is about opening your mind to a whole lot of possibilities – of what was, what is and what will be. It is taking a time machine back to the people left behind, or sticking around to watch others through the glass or going ahead to those you wish you knew.
It is believing that you are making sense to someone out there even if you are not. Poetry is the imagination of life.
