    I aM PoEtRy...

    a succession of mentalities
    transpiring my existence
    overflowing with scribe
    I vibe to the enviromental beat
    blends of life's tapestry
    awakens my third eye
    to new explorations
    it excites me to act
    on blue skies
    why birds fly
    love hurts sometimes
    I cry tears of society ills
    jot down my complaints
    yet it is only a micron
    of circumstances cached


    I aM PoEtRy....

    living and loving
    in this world called me
    I see miracles
    I change into lyrical
    understanding
    play harps in my heart
    dance to romance
    all while singing notes
    that float in my senses
    creating tidy rhapsodies
    merging paper and pen
    yes and I praise joy
    I adore God's gift
    he inspires me to print
    releasing my soul's core
    for all to experience


    I aM PoEtRy....

    verbs that induce
    abstracts that attract
    knowledge unbound
    stories untold
    places I've been
    I marvel the sun's radiance
    I listen to the trees whisper
    I imagine the inevitable
    I touch the spirit within
    bringing forth my destiny
    to be more than I am
    an inkwell of hope
    a messenger of faith
    a vessel of love



    I aM PoEtRy....


    to the end
