    Some think that writing poetry & prose is just words on paper,
    But it’s more than that
    Deeper than that.
    For we do not simply write
    We scribe
    What we feel
    What we think
    What we desire
    What we need
    For to be in the poetic flow
    One must learn how to bring words to life
    Create imagery
    Utilize imagination
    Have an open mind for new things and ideas
    Yes the flow
    Realize that words are powerful weapons
    That can be used to love or to hurt.
    A true poet does not abuse the power
    But instead is used by the power
    Yes the flow
    With it one can make society take notice
    Can bring about social awareness
    and in the case of the Bishop
    One can make love just by scribing thoughts
    Yes the flow
    So those who hope to exhibit their talents as a scribe
    Remember what I say
    This thing must be your passion



    Feel the Power of the Flow

    People, take heed.

    The fake will be weeded out by their words & deeds.

    Very nice piece.

    Words have never been any more true.
