Reasons

I wrote a poem called "Little Reason". It was a terrible poem, but nearly everyone's standards, even my own, but I did not care. The poem expressed what I was feeling at the time I wrote it. Isn't that the point of poetry? To express feelings that you can't necessarily put into words? I could never actually outline all of my reasons for making a very personal and emotional decision, so I wrote a poem about them. I felt better about myself, but I still had to explain the poem - nobody really understands my poetry. I purposely make it esoteric.
