Poetry Helped (Poetry Not Dead)

They say poetry is dead.

This one statement I want get out of my head.

This more than a hobby it's a lifestyle.

I can care less about it being in with the in-crowd.

Without I poetry I wouldn't be the same man that I'am right now.

Probably would of fell down on my luck pal.

Everything I wrote keep me afloat.

So don't take this as a joke.

Poetry given me the tools to grow.

Gave me a smile when times were low.

Even defuse me when I was about to blow.

Poetry saved me what can I say.

This art form is great!
