The following is a poem about poems.
Poems are words a poet collects
to convey messages hard to forget
or to tell a truth so there are no regrets.
Poems are stored in the heart and soul
of poets waiting for their muses to call
Poems flow like rivers through the mind
and words can be sweet and sometimes unkind
And if there is a cause
that needs to be fought
A poem can manage
and never be caught
without a deep thought
to stimulate thinking
elevate the spirit,
and comfort the soul.
