Poetry In My Life

Life came without instructions,
and when looking for balance,
I found verses of this life
written in the pages of poetry.  
Poems are the fingerprints of life 
from cultures today 
and those of centuries past. 
Poetry is a gift to us
from the minds of others 
to teach us about ourselves. 
Meditating on well written poetry
was transforming for me, 
and writing poetry myself 
releases restless energies 
from deep within my soul.
Poetry organizes my thoughts
and allows me to visualize and feel life 
from a different perspective.
Poetry has a calming effect.

Edward J. Ebbs - 12/03/11

More of a declaration, inspired by: 
What brought you to poetry?
