Poetry – Original Poem

poetry1

It is the spirit of all emotion
Love, pain, hate and hope

It is the essence of life
The air that we breathe

Heart pounding, eager and proud

It is the purity of all that drives passion.

Poetry, in a word, is the core of existence
The light that shines on humanity and provides guidance

Overwhelming and gentle, it seeps into your soul and releases an orchestra of powerful hymns
We are pawns to a universal game of cat and mouse
Innovation and technology force us to look to the future
Poetry keeps us in the now

These are the words we remember
Not for the letters or the sounds, but for the moments they define

One moment can change it all
It solidifies the foundation and gives meaning
One moment forever captured

The historians Whitman, Plath, Keats and Neruda pen these moments so that we may learn
We may fly
We may be free

Freedom is not a life without shackles
Freedom is a mental state of expressiveness
It is a life without fear
A life of promise

Poetry
Poetry
That is the greatest human strength
It will not judge
It will not bear witness to a jury
It is never alone and always by your side

Never abandoned
Always an ally of love
A shadow hovering; coating the heart
