Poetry


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
Remember!
Poetry is that holy domain.

    A nice ode to the soothing power of poetry, as others have said poetry has a way of shaping our minds and given us perspective on subject matters that make us think and question what we take for granted. Its a science of communication with artistic expression. A lovely job (Report) Reply

    I have always seen poetry as a wild and unique creature, one that we look upon in awe, because it does not live by the ordinary rules of life: Poetry always finds a way to surprise us, to enlighten us, to make dreams and magic real in our hearts. Your poem is a great reminder of what the power of poetry can achieve. (Report) Reply

    Yup. i agree poetry comes out when emotions are stirred. Men always used verse when emotionally touched. Loved to see someone writing on the values and purpose of poetry. (Report) Reply
