    "Poetic" has various terms, so ha I'll get shanked if someone who knows me well on here read it but I guess it would depend on what TERM you're talking about.

    I plan to study it in college as well, but even then I don't believe I will feel I have "mastered" it, it's just indefinite to me, and is never complete, because I write from experience-and that is something that never dies, even when my time is up.

    Poetry allows me to release myself, mentally I guess you can say-just like track allows physically. You make me wanna write a poem about this lol.

    I don't know what I am. I often get criticized because I don't use all this imagery and I don't conform to the norm. I've been told I don't have a style and that I'm not creative. So I don't know what I am. I just write and try to write real talk. I don't try to define me. I just am what I am. It's your opinion on wether I'm poetic or if I'm poetry enough!

    my point exactly. Is poetry just rap without rhymes in some caes or is it more because it is so posed to contain more emotion?

    No. you could compare poetry to anything that has a high level of emotion. Rap included.

    Here's the difference.

    Anyone who tells you poetry is just written emotion, is lying. Poetry has emotion in it, but it's not what it's all about. There are so many different ways to write a poem. Free verse, rhyming, etc, etc........

    A poet doesn't display emotion, he/she makes ordinary words, and thoughts, and makes them beautiful. basically.

    man dont let all that happen I think that you should be proud to be a poet and you shouldnt be affraid if you will to show your work. I think a poet should be proud of what he has written.

    as your work comes from the heart and is done with emotions, then you have already mastered the art of poetry. It's not any definate thing or structure, and that is the true beauty or essence of poetry, too many people try to adjust their minds to think what poetry means to others...when in fact, you should write poetry for yourself.
