Isn’t that why we poets do what we do?
We attempt to see beyond the classic view.
Then we share what wonders we have found.
What a glorious beauty there is all around.
Often we see the terrible cruelty of mankind.
And we shout out, “Are we not all entwined!?”
We’ve a deep desire to have a positive impact.
And we wonder how our world is still intact.
Our words plead to slow down and smell the roses.
And to see the beauty that is right under our noses.
After all it is always good to slow down the pace.
As we unwind, we try to forget about the rat race.
Also we write for inner cleansing of the mind.
Out with the bad of the daily bump and grind.
We tend to sip our coffee and tea very slowly.
And our quiet time is considered sacred and holy.
But ultimately, the goal of every poet is clear.
The intent is to touch the hearts of those dear.
If just one life in this world has been made better,
Worthy was every line, every word and every letter.
