Let`s verse and rhyme
Words and phrases enough sublime,
That could ignite passions and stir emotions,
Something new and novel
From hearts pure and loyal
Will enlighten all the minds obscure,
And could turn a smile oblique into a gentle speak,
And embark the scared humanity
Into a state of peace and serenity,
Let`s pen melodies those O Mighty souls!
That could lead
The air of pathetic pride and prejudice
To a solemn pardon and indemnity,
Let defile those
Who, In the name of Race, Region and Religion
Blurred and barred the mortal`s vision.
Let`s invite again the heavenly Muses
And confess our incompetence and excuses,
Let it be sure
Only poetry enlightens all the minds obscure,
And will soothe and harness
Our lust and instincts morbid,
And will constrain the Satan's claim
That veiled humanity in shame
Poetry is that holy domain.
