The Unpoem

For Those Who Love Poetry Unconditionally

A poem is not perfect.
It doesn’t have to be molded
Into shapes or sizes
Or themes.

It doesn’t have to be cheerful or humorous,
Sad or serious.
No big words are needed,
And footnotes are not required.

It can be an interpretation for the world to understand,
Or speak a special language just for you.
Share it with everyone,
Or keep it privately in a safe place.

A poem doesn’t have to be written or spoken.
It can be as simple as a thought,
Or as complex as an interrupted dream.
Whatever the poem is or isn’t to the world,
Let it mean something to you.
