Power to the Pen

This poem is on poetry.

People, places, purposes,

through these my writing flourishes

and becomes a piece of me.


This poem is on poetry.

I cannot help but notice

everybody losing focus

on what it truly means to be.


Be alive!

Hear your thoughts.

When you’re finding yourself lost,

I hope before you cry, you’ll first

sit at your desk and write a verse.


For this inevitable emotion,

causes turbulence, commotion,

turning gentle seas inside of me

to impassioned crashing oceans.

But through these feelings, I upheld,

and that how we find ourselves.


This poem is on poetry.

It forces you to think.

So all your problems, pain, and puzzlement

will leave your mind

with ink.
