We have that inner words that we just can not say due to a more louder outer words. Most of our minds are distracted by the mechanical noise of our systematic behavior which makes us follow habits , therefore, we have trouble hearing ourselves. Most have no clue when we ask everyone of "What are their talent?". Everyone has a talent but the majority just doesn't realize it. Talent is one of our way of knowing ourselves. Poetry is a very powerful and effective way to express our self which everyone are able to do as long as we are aware of our feelings.
Communication is knowing just how to use your words to convey the way you feel. Did you know that in writing, grammar can be butchered and you can become really famous for butchered grammar. It is all in he way you express the words. Feeling and emotions are not the same, they are different because emotions come from the mind and soul, but feelings include physical sensations. Feelings go away, but emotions linger on being sealed in your mind, unable to forget.
All of the lines in the poem will relate to the word written in an Acrostic poem. The first letter of each line spells out a word, name, or phrase when the poem is read vertically. Here is an example:
Shines bright during daytime
Ultraviolet rays penetrate the window
Noontime temperatures are rising
Reflections is like peering into a magic mirror and seeing all parts of yourself, mind, body, and soul.
Music will allow you to open the door to your soul. Music without the lyrics or words, is a melody. Listen to some music without words and tell a story to the tunes and beats and it will become a song.
Mirror Mirror on the Wall
Mirror Mirror on the wall, who is the most talented of all? Remember that you have a magic mirror and it can only be described by the words you say. Describe your mirror in such a way that you want others to see or understand you. This should include physically, intellectually and personally. Tell about yourself from the inside and out. Express yourself........
In the heat of the summer I do not rest
That is when I do damage best
I am the mosquito who loves to bite
It is not hard to find me at night
You will not escape my gruesome attack
I will even bite you on the back
The sun gives warmth to the earth for me to survive
I am the mosquito and I am alive

These old river blues will never die
So, mama don't you cry for me
Don't cry for me
I'm leavin' on the Delta Queen
Gonna roll this river
see what I can see
Gonna make a way for you and me
Don't ask why and don't you cry
these old river blues will never die
