On ‘Throwback Thursdays’ I want to share some older Poems and post of mine. I hope you will enjoy!
Today I want to share a Poetrics with you I wrote for my little brother a while ago.
Poetrics is a combination of lyrics from some of my favorite songs and poetry I write inspired by these songs.
I take the essence of the song, the meaning it has, and write a poem on that. Then I let the lyrics of the song dance through the poem.
Note: The lyrics always stay the property of the band or artist who wrote them. All the credit goes to them.
Part of the lyrics of “I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz
I don’t wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I’m here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools and gifts we got, yeah, we got a lot at stake
And in the end, you’re still my friend at least we did intend
For us to work we didn’t break, we didn’t burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I’ve got, and what I’m not, and who I am
I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up, still looking up.
