I feel like I have a more poetic sense of what poetry is, and how versitile it is.
One way to add figurative language would be to replace "a bit of truth" with something like "half a flask of truth."
"Poetry is the years that make up the word 'trust'"
I pondered on this line for awhile, and then finally understood it. It describes poetry really well.
There are places to add more figurative language to, but there are no places to change the meaning. Keep the same meaning, its great! Just develop it.
I can't tell if it was intentional to make the first two lines the only two lines that don't rhyme (I know the third and fourth lines don't rhyme, but they are near rhymes), or if it was because it was too hard to think of a rhyme. I like the emphasis, though.
