"autism isn't contagious, but a smile is and that's what im afraid of."-grumpy cat

so your reading a poem
well i`m writing a poem
wanna know something funny
i wrote the poem your reading

there is no rhyme or rhythm
that's not what makes a poem
you might say
i`m just jotting words on paper

no i`m telling a story
a story of paper, pen, and body
on a bus heading home
my handwriting messy

i hope you enjoyed my poem
if you agree with me
and say that's what it is
now pick up paper and pen and write a poem of your own

This is really kwl! I love the idea :) You're right. Poems aren't about the rythm or rhym, but the story behind it

Really cute little poem, it drew a crooked smile on my face. I think you inspired me to write an other poem right now. Thank you so much for being honest and saying what you think about poems ;)  :P

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

I loved it; it's simple but still great. It brought a smile to my face (in a good way.) Thank you, for sharing this.

I liked the simplicity of it. the ending was a bit jarring i think, maybe the last two lines would have done well with some rhyming. I love the idea of the poem

More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
