Feelings: Something Sacred Unto Me Poem by Margaret Alice

Feelings: Something Sacred Unto Me

Rating: 2.9

Promote yourself and your artistry
as an artist I sing of my own liberty
and I will not bow to your demands
that I promote the words I chose to
express my despair, my greatest sorrows,
my highest joys, my overpowering fears

I frame these surging waves in words
that cry and laugh and sing and dance
words that put me in a trance; words
to enchant or hypnotize the mind and
lift the soul beyond this world into
a state of transcendental meditation

The only things I will promote
condescendingly are plastic objects
used without emotional response and
discarded without second thought; but
poetry is something else - I treat it
as something sacred unto me...

... then why bother to promote if you will promote condescendingly? Is it worth the priceless time to waste on worthless plastic? The rest makes perfect sense.
