What is a poem, Really?

Sometimes the simplest of poems are the ones with the biggest meanings. Many people believe that a poem is just about lines that rhyme together. In a sense, that is true, but in order to really appreciate a poem, you must read the meaning behind the words. In the following poem, the topic is obviously about 'LOVE'. Sometimes a poem can tell an entire story. Sometimes it could be a play with words. But most all the time, a poem brings out someones inner self, a part of a person that you cannot explain, except by feelings put into words. Poems have been around since the beginning of time, The topic of this poem may be the essential reason why poems exist.

LOVE CAN

Love can make you happy,
Love can make you sad.
Love comes from a mother
and also from a dad.

Love for your sister
Love for your brother.
You must love your self
along with one another.

Yes love is a big word
that carries lots of weight.
Love is just a simple word
that can erase a lot of hate.

If Love was spread more freely
in which everyone would share.
This world could be a better place
for the children that we bare.
