'Are You Getting The Message? ' - Poem by Linda Winchell

Are you even interested in my poetry?
No matter how silly the words may not seem at times to rhyme,
Are you getting the meanings placed in each?
Or are you just killing a bit of idle time.

I do not profess to be like “Poe, ”
Or even one…in the least of these,
But the messages placed in each poem I write,
May sometimes really not be meant to poetically please.

They are meant to open up your mind,
To maybe a deeper more profound point of view,
They might take you sometimes to a place,
Where none other has ever been allowed or knew.

I might sometimes speak of the God I know,
Then sometimes wander off into a, “La, La land”,
Wherever my words might take its reader,
In hope that when reading they’ll come to understand.

    Yes the message is very clear, and this poem is a blessing to read as well as an eye-opener. I think content is more important than form, and good presentation fails if the poem lacks essence. (Report) Reply
