    Poetry is like worship it will have it's own way.
    It is not dictated by what this one and that one might say.
    We worship with words to emit our pure thought.
    Not to feel challenges strong breath or doubters
    hard stares.
    Poetry is like worship it's in your spirtual realm,
    can't be analyzed by genius or recreated in film.
    Poetry is like worship you pray what you feel.
    How can someone tell you what you say is not real.
    Worship is like the ultimate spiritual place, where
    no specific stanza or pentameter or symantic exists.
    Poetry feeds the soul and renews the faithless.
    Encourages the down trodden , brings a look of
    knowing to your face. Poetry is sacred and there
    fore like spirit takes on many forms...It is not what
    I think you want to hear, but what is born...
    from my spirit comes messages transmitted through
    thought and senses, feelings and images nature
    and love...That is what real Poetry is made of!

    *When we judge each other's worship we should judge
    them with care, cause rememeber there is sacredness
    there.

    Thanks for reading!

    It is pretty much how I see Poetry, I think one of our Scribes said, "My religion is Poetry", I think whatever feeds the spirit is sacred...


    Blessings On Ya House!:D :D
