We Are Poetry

Here’s a thought,

For everyone looking for one,

One that will shatter those walls,

And cut down the wired fences.

Here’s a thought that will join

All that has been torn apart

That should never have separated.

There is a vision in one’s mind

That is born a few years after us,

An idea that we hope we will always remember,

The poems we write, recite,

Mirror this idea

Every poem carries an undercurrent

Of truth,

A kind of shadow

Superimposed against the page.

Life is poetry in a way.

We choose to live in rhyme,

We choose to roam free,

We choose, and that’s what makes us, us:

A poem, written among stars

And darkness,

Letting the silence know

“We Exist”.
