Poetry is difficult to understand sometimes because very often its language is indirect. The busy reader wants to read through a write-up and understand it’s meaning without doing any extra work, and sometimes avoids poetry since it demands commitment and energy.
The truth is that apart from the hidden meanings of verses, poetry offers a beautiful sound of language and an emotional insight in the subject matter, drawn from the poet’s perspective.
The poem “Keep Personalizing” is a beautiful expression of love. I was drawn to it as soon as I set my eyes on it. The poet, Ma Socorro, uses words and sound of language to express the thoughts of someone feeling highly loved and content enough to give reasons for being in such a beautiful mood.
