A soul is angry

at itself

at all things

at others

at God


a soul

has been brutalized


a soul

is advised

to follow

its own instincts

in all things

the Lord

has cleared a way


A soul has been forgiven


that is why

a soul

lives well

eats well

cares well

helps others

skillfully

compared to its enemies


there will be sword play

a soul shall not falter

in My Kingdom

      I might add, GoogleAdsenseAds, it is vivid to lean heavily into contrast. Not just images but contrast ideas and characters and feelings too. Try to be succinct but not at the expense of rhythm and music. Trade them off when necessary. Conflict can be powerful as well. Oedipus Rex has conflict in every scene, in every exchange of words from start to finish, for example. Off the top of my head keep all those things in mind. One other thing you can do. Locate the base passion beneath your story and theme and use it to guide you pen. Let every word you write based on anger, for example, convey the raw feeling of anger , as well as your conceptual ideas. Let the passion be the underlying theme. Never let it get away no matter what the feeling your poem gives voice to.

      Write from the heart. Use meaty words that hit the feelings physically hard. Be honest with your self. Be vulnerable so people can relate. Show off some cool. OK by everyone. Be the same in a different way. Look just a step or two deeper than others. They like a deeper look. Respect the traditions of older poets and their techniques like assonance, etc. Those are good ideas. Have something to say and wrap it carefully in your words. Just for starters.
