Poem: The Power of Poetry


Let your truth speak,

Reflecting more within

than the sun off the stream.

Moving mountains

without pushing,

Flowing thoughts

without speaking,

Crossing water

without swimming.

Formation of lines,

Running across the page,

Faster than lightning,

Intentional as a choice.

Speaks from the soul,

Without sound produced,

Flies as high as superman,

Saving the heart from sorrow.

Giving reason

without trial,

Warmth

without fire,

Fondness

without absence,

Giving

without charity,

Flight

without wings

Power

without tyranny.

Poetry.
