    I am poetry
    I am those words your father whispered
    into your mother’s ears as he hit her
    word’s that resulted in… you.
    I am poetry.

    I am the hist… of history
    of stories untold
    the words that brought peace to war
    and tranquility to the tortured soul.
    I am poetry.

    I am the crest of the crescent moon
    that lit the nights of social gloom
    and brought freedom to the shackled mind
    on underground railroads of thought combined
    this poetry and me to set you free
    for I am poetry.

    I was in the heart of Hannibal
    as he scaled mountains to history’s stratosphere
    In the soul of Sun Tzu
    as the art of war brought impotent civilization fear
    In the mind of Chaka
    as the Zulu peoples conquered a continent with the spear
    I was that poetry
    In the peace of Martin, just deserts of Malcolm
    that fought the same war, and battled talcum
    covered hatred and with unity and love, hate was shattered
    I was that poetry
    that flowed the Tigris and Euphrates
    to Egyptian civilization, pyramids amazing
    words flowing in the heart of Hebrew slave who made them
    even rolling from the lips of Moses/Aaron who’d save them.
    I brought culture to the Roman Empire of old
    Dominating the world, no story untold
    as historians passed on history, to pen their souls
    as poets with Greco/Roman flow.
    I am the Chinaman’s chi
    the Negro’s sweet beats
    the German’s poetic strudel
    I am the whole world’s kit and caboodle
    I am poetry.
    I flowed from David’s pen in the Psalms
    Was the Wisdom of Solomon, his dread-locked Son
    an ecclesiastical journey to the center of the human’s being
    opening blinded eyes, makin’ sure all of’um are seein’.
    I am Buddah’s bust
    Mohammed’s just
    Chirst’s sinless blood
    bringing salvation to the poetic world.
    I am poetry.
    So flow with me….
