I knew poetry:
when I spoke for the first time in one two words
when I cried and laughed with the family and friends whom we used to play together
when I learnt in primary school during the class of Language from a grumpy teacher
When I read an old romance novel that drunkened its character with love and I found Gibran’s work to capture my heart right away
when I watched movie of poetry with full of amazing scenes
when I listened to music’s lyric and its melodies took away my mind flying to the land of faraway
when I first time introduced to a puppy love. I had crush for someone, dated him until one day we broke up. I tried tell myself that ‘I am fine’ but in fact ‘I am not’.
when I started to move on as an adolescent, I told myself to study hard and to chase my dreams
when I got a job that made me famous but then it made me inquired myself, ‘why do I work?’
when I enter the marriage life which is never always full of roses and fruit but there are also some thorns included
when I met every soul that told me their stories and begged me to feel them and then I asked my soul, why do I come to this world?
From all of these, I knew poetry.
Poetry is everyone and everything in our daily life.
Poetry is the spring and my inquirer soul is longing to drink its fresh water.
