So you say

Students can't write

So you say

Poetry is for the elite

So you say

We are incapable of understanding

The beauty of words

So you say

Symbolism is too complex for us

Careful characterization is beyond us

We cannot process the intentions of syntax

So you say

Writing is an adult world

We are not mature enough

We have not seen the world

We have not known life

We need more experience

So you say

And this is what I say

I say that you are the one incapable of understanding

The beauty that students create

You are so blinded by your prejudice

You refuse to accept that we can be just as lyrical

Our words can be just as blinding

You cannot comprehend that, on average

Most poets peak early in life

I say that you need to open your mind

You need to realize that you are wrong

You need to realize that you are stuck in a box that you put yourself in

You need to realize that you can't get out

I say that you are wrong

You are wrong

You are prejudiced

So I say
