The Essence of Poetry

Poetry is the best form of medicine
Bringing hope to the weary and the sick
Revealing innermost thoughts
Of things left unsaid

Poetry is a song
Syllable by syllable
Verse by verse
Bringing forth the rhythm
Of life

Poetry is a journey
Of discovery in one’s self
Learning, growing, aspiring
All recorded in a poem
