SAVE THE POEM
They say the poem is a dying art,
sad to me and not too smart.
The poem can provoke positive thought,
soothe the soul and brighten the heart,
which in turn helps heal the body,
so why would we throw it away?
I don’t even know what to say!
Instead consider this,
stop and take a moment for bliss.
Read a poem as food for thought,
read how someone else feels as you do or do not.
Go places you have wanted to see,
or be the person you want to be.
They make you laugh,
and love or make you cry,
most important they make you ask why?
Your body will relax,
your mind will calm.
This is a good thing to keep around
and there are plenty of poems to be found.
If you don’t see one you like,
then how about the one you could write?
It could be a thought or a rhyme,
it could take place anytime.
It could be something about you,
or just three lines of haiku.
Bring back the Poetry I proclaim!
To take it away would be insane.
Poetry expands the mind;
this is something you will find.
Take the time to share a thought or two
and maybe bring a smile to you.
