In A Poem

Rating: 4.5

There's a notion you have, that a poem should be good
And the way that you write, is a fight, understood
So you think to yourself, and you write, as you would
In a poem.

In the stillness of night, or the bustle of day
There is something inside you which stokes you to say
That what fades in your mind is what stays on display
In a poem.

Every word, every line, every stanza we start
Every meaning of life, is a light to impart
Every truth, is a right, and a gift of the heart
In a poem.

In a valley so low, or a mountain so high
There is nothing you know, that is not worth a try
So you reach for a cloud, but you capture the sky
In a poem.

In the glory and wonder and meaning of man
And the right of his birth to be all that he can
You may capture his life and the course of his plan
In a poem.

For love is much better than trouble and doubt
To perish in hate is to pass in a drought
Much better to live and to let your love out
In a poem.
