Poetry doesn't really have a lot of rules especially if you're the creator. I channeled a lot of emotion that I felt throughout the day into my poetry or things that I consistently think about and it ended up being poetry.
Lili loves to write and enjoys the freedom of poetry. Southern Word at Nashville State is one way you can join Lili, express yourself, and learn more about the power of the written — and spoken — word.
