What it Means

You know, I never really thought

How we would be without creativity, blandness as

Far as the eye can see

A visual and mental drought


There would be no color

No music, no art,

Nothing to move the heart

Nor anything to discover


It's a hard thing to ponder, what it means

To live such a bleak life

Void of meaning with no respite

Let alone poetry it seems


The greatest works of the world gone,

Even this one I write,

As I acknowledge this spotlight

And have my thoughts be looked upon


So if poetry did not exist,

I know that I would say:

Though it had never seen the light of day

It would most certainly be missed




This poem is about: 
My community
My country
Our world
