Poetry Is...

Poetry is language
unravelled, unfettered,
unfaltered, unwound,  
poetry sees itself as all things  
in reaching, teaching,  
leaning toward the light  
in guiding a promise to  
garner insight,  
poetry is letting go  
of the you that everyone knows,  
poetry is you unmasked,  
from within your emerging past,  
a full circle of finding yourself  
ending where you began  
writing your name for the  
first time,    
who knew you had volumes  
hidden inside..
