Crows And Swallows

if every word was a note

and every sentence a chord 

if every paragraph was a song

and every essay an album

if every poem was a flower

and every sonnet a garden

if every sentence rule and comma guideline 

was a brush stroke—

maybe you’d understand art

 

I enjoyed making this poem because I was trying to convey how writing is just as much an art as any other traditional art. I am happy that I was able to convey this through writing as well.

 

who is this kid in the mirror

how does he represent who I am

every shirt every sweatshirt

carefully picked to create

a persona that is shown

to classmates and peers

to look presentable

honestly

i would rather wear sweats

 

i made this poem as a mix between a commentary on the Fenn dresscode and how people want to impress each other with their clothes. A lot of people buy very expensive clothes and shoes to show off but I never been the type of person to do that.

 

It really is a shame 

that on a beautiful day like today

i am stuck inside

attempting to do work

while distracted 

by the birds

frolicking

on the other side

of the glass portal

 

 

I wrote this poem after looking out the window trying to brainstorm ideas. I am always happier outside, and I can’t wait to write poetry while surrounded by nature.
