All Of Life Is Poetry (A Poem)

This is a brand new tradition where I share a poem each Thursday—either one I’ve written, or one I love. Today’s poem is one I wrote in response to the fact that people so often say they hate poetry, or they’re scared of it.

It’s called All of Life Is Poetry. I hope you enjoy.


All of Life Is Poetry

All of life is poetry—seemingly
unrelated images, events
strung together like pearls in a

so close
but barely touching.

All of life is poetry—
cloudy and confusing,
a squinting at things that
do not make sense

until one day, they do.

All of life is like that—
singing and burning
and ringing
and screaming from the rooftops,

quietly in the middle of the night,
waking you, at times,
from sleep.

Secrets we keep
hidden from everyone
live in our poems—
the only place they fit.

All of life is poetry,
boring if your eyes are closed
terrifying if they are open,
and you are breathing through it.

Poetry is a gift.

All of life is poetry.
Sing, sing, sing with me.
Sing with it.

      Thanks so much for your kind words—and for helping me find the courage to share mine. It means the world to me!

        With so much in my heart, I am here to express myself about how Priest Leo saved my marriage from divorce. My husband and I were having some misunderstandings and it was tearing our marriage apart to the extent my husband was seeking a divorce. So I have no option other than to go to the internet to seek a solution to my problem. It was there I came across Priest Leo details and about how he has helped a lot of people by restoring their relationships. I contacted Priest Leo and in less than 48 hours my husband cancelled the divorce papers. Now I and my husband live together in peace and harmony all thanks to Priest Leo for saving my marriage from breaking up. Priest Leo contact information is via email: Astrosolutionrealm@gmail.com, or call his phone number or WhatsApp: +1(661) 525 4146 his website is http://astrosolutionrealm.website2.me/

    2. I Instantly Need A Real Love Spell Caster To Help Me Bring Back My Ex Lover WhatsApp +1(419)3594367

      My Husband broke up with me after 9years of relationship. It started from small misunderstandings after which he told me that it would be good to take a break, which I think turned into a breakup. He no longer looks for me, he blocked my number and people said they saw him with another woman, this brought tears to my eyes because we are about to marry, I searched for help when I came across this spiritual man called PRIEST OSAS who have helped many people having relationship problem, I talked with him about my situation and he described to me the process to get back with my lover, I followed his instructions and today I’m happy because my man came back after 5 months of breakup and we are happily married now. If you need the help of a spell caster for any kind of relationship problem contact PRIEST OSAS for a lasting solution. EMAIL: Unsurpassed.solution@gmail.com

  1. Hi Ally,
    Just finished watching your interview with Claire Diaz-Ortiz on the Work by Design Summit. Your words were so encouraging and helpful. Poetry is one of those things I “used to do” when I was in school – before my inner critic got the better of me. I absolutely love this poem. It is fresh, authentic and really speaks straight to my heart.
    Thanks for everything you share in your writing and thanks for being such an encouragement for others.

      Thank you Allison! That was such a fun interview with Claire. I adore her. And I hope you find a way to go to blows with your inner-critic and show it who’s boss. The world will be better for it. Thanks for reading and for your kind words 🙂

  2. Best Way to Get Your Ex Lover Back Fast Even If Your Situation Seems Hopeless!. I just got my husband back through the help of genuine love spell caster Lord Zuma. My name is Emily Sarah am from Tx,USA. My husband left me for another woman, This was just 3 years of our marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called Lord Zuma, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 12 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 12 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. thanks to Lord Zuma . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Lord Zuma for help now..

    I would like to testify how a powerful spell caster (Dr. Olokun) cured my brother who for the past 7 years has been suffering from a serious ailment. We basically searched everywhere for a solution until I contacted Dr. Olokun and to my greatest surprise that was the end of the ailment. When I worked with this man, all his sayings and predictions were spot on, some people have problems, but they are communicating with the wrong people. Dr. Olokun is a highly recommended, trustworthy person, his goal is to end the problem you are having. I know how it feels to have a persistent problem but I am here to let you know that Dr. Olokun is the solution. Contact him to get the solution to these problems. Contact email: drolokun23@gmail.com
