In Poetry My Friends - Poem by Hebert Logerie

Let’s hold hands
Stand shoulder to shoulder
Next to each other
Like brothers and sisters
Like brave and valiant soldiers
In poetry my friends
We do not use foul
We use our heart and soul
Throughout our passage
We tell the truth
We describe the roof
Its contents, its color
Its shape and its odor
We expose the deficiencies
We explore the possibilities
We win because we’re not afraid to fail
We respect our brothers and sisters
As we work, as we pray, as we sail
We love Mother Earth, her flowers
Her beauty, the four seasons
And everyone with good reasons.

We despise the terrorists
The dictators and the racists
We’re never afraid
To fight hate and hatred
We do not use foul
We explicitly use soul
Nobody can fool us
As we fight for justice
Reconciliation and peace
Let’s hold hands
Poetry is our weapons
Words are our bullets
We do not need guns
We use simile, verbs, epithets
We sing beautiful songs
We use different tongues
To warn our enemies
We are no dummies
Let’s hold hands
As siblings, as great friends
So we can get to the top together
So we can be stronger than a pillar
And taller than any tower
We have the power
Good will always defeat evils
Let’s vanquish all devils
God is on our side
He is protecting us as we ride
As we walk, as we march, as we fly
As we’re breathing happily under the sky.

    This is very beautiful, Herbert.
    When I visit this website and read poems from my friends around here, I feel so close to these friends. Even though sometimes I do not even know their real name, the friendship and closeness that we experience to poetry is so great. It has happened that i felt closer to a poetry friend than my real friends in real life.
