A poem-Sent From Heaven To Write

Updated on September 23, 2012
Source

A thunderous roar opened the heaven gates

Flash of blinding lightning sliced through the vast dark universe

Dividing the universe into sky and sea

Source

The angles played melodic tunes giving a shape to the earth

Draped in a shaggy white linen cloak

He descended down from heaven to earth

With a pen and a note book

The pen as the sword

The note book as the wisdom

Sent from heaven to fight for what humanity has lost

He had to fight for a price, a war to win, a broken heart to heal

And a song to sing to the lonely and miserable souls

He’s a poet sent from heaven to write

Source

The holy ghost, the saints or the crooked witch

Neither his faded diary nor pen ever would know what he writes next

It just happens because he’s a poet

He lives in an imaginary world

Swims in the ocean of books and breathes the fumes of burnt thoughts

He surfs the waves of wise thinking

And dines with the words of wise and old

It all just happens because he’s a poet

Sent from heaven to write
