To me, William Shakespeare is the “People’s Poet”-
whose timeless and beautiful works always permit
the identification of yourself within the words that you read;
a further understanding of the human condition, and it’s need’s-
who, through his poem’s, play’s, sonnet’s, and character’s
always ask’s questions, and gives answers.
The more Shakespeare you read the more his words rise from the page,
especially if you are in the audience of them being performed on stage.
Tales of love, loss, ambition, and jealousy,
of time, comedy, tyranny, and identity,
are but a handful of the themes that Shakespeare explores;
and through which, like a key to the lock of many doors,
The Bard himself transports his audience to many places-
allows us to feel, and understand the motivations of many faces.
