It’s funny how a simple poem can depict what we truly feels. It was just a simple poem yet it contains every word that we can’t utter and every feelings that we can’t show. In fact, it was supposed to be just a simple activity given by the teacher, but it carries every memories that we wish to forget or want to bring back.

Behind every poem is a story untold. Behind every poem are words unsaid. Behind every poem are feelings not showed. Behind every poem is a poet unknown.

Maybe writing a poem is our way of setting ourselves free. Maybe we use it as clue for them solve a broken puzzle — us. It’s our way of reminiscing the past, escaping from the present, or planning for the future. It’s our way to say what we truly want. It’s our way to show what we truly feel. It’s our way of telling them who we truly are.
