Who said that you can decide, what is poetry?

Who said that you can decide, what is poetry? 
If you think my words are weak because they are
Not poems, as thou think so but I shall remind thee
That ye have no respect, for those who tell their love ones
That their poems art what they said
Accept if one’s poetry is different from you, alas, thou cannot
Say what thou think, based on thy sound
But I shall tell you that ye have no idea what poetry is 
If you think that is based on yours, then, thou know it’s unfair
For you to say that my words are weak, no, not fair for thou
To say that I said, the weak words because thou think thy words
Art strong or what you said, the strong words thou think so 
But not me, not some, ye see that I might paint thy understanding
That ye need to respect, for those who declare that they’re saying 
Or writing is poetry, accept anyone’s poem who declare their poetry!

I am a Deaf male, and I write what comes my mind. I have been creatively writing since 2010, and from there has been growing my excitement and passionate for my poetry and writing.
