The Poetry of our Lives
Poetry is a revealing of one's inner soul.
Poetry is words written and spoken from the heart.
Poetry is an escape from an evil hole,
Poetry is a sharing of that which we are a part.
The poet speaks in words that surely rhyme,
A poem may paint a picture on the written page.
A poem may never make its owner a dime,
What value can be placed upon a poetic sage?
Poems may never have a rhythm or a rhyme,
only to tell of feelings long held within.
written on a whim, of an imagination, sublime,
or on thoughts that have festered, to begin.
Poetry is an image seen in a crystal pool,
an expression of feelings from a benevolent host.
the sum total of a life, be it sane or of a fool,
with its purpose meant to raise glasses in a toast.
