Poetry: The Voice Of The Soul

The Soul! Enveloped in flames of a burning Heart suppressed by the strong will of the mind and silenced by the dynamism of the body's actions. The Soul! Morbid with many soft spots. It's creation comes forth with undetected weakness and even during its loudest outcry it is almost always never heard. How then! can we establish the much needed connection? Even if it means stitching our nature to its wants and treating it beyond just a mere cosmic wave Establishing the connection, may seem like counting all the legs of a millipede while in motion Or observing just one drop, from an outpour of heavy rain. but it's possible to take that step closer, by so doing, only in Poetry. cos its the Soul Talker. Poetry enters the deepest pits and travels the longest distances. It brings out reality even from the abstract and a Fulcrum of Music. It bears the weight of every Nation and can connect all physical forces. A stronghold to Life, like one of Nature's elements and exciting to all, both young and Old. A preserver of tradition and a major component of History A sound mind speaks wisdom and a clean Heart expresses exemplary virtues but when the soul speaks poetry is manifested How weird is having no sounds from a clinging pair of Cymbals and no melody from a gently played Violin so also is like the Soul without Poetry.

    Expressing our thoughts in poetry really touches our inner being. We recite the poems coming from our inner thougths...makes the soul rejoice in every verses we share. Thanks for sharing. Nice meeting you in soup. Love Dalila

    Hi Funom! I have only read about half your postings, and, unlike the rap-like roughly rhymed rasp of the ones I read, this poem echoes with philosophical implications, though I don't much like the form in which it is wrapped. It does point to profounder layers in your make-up. So you can be serious or earnest, an essential element/facet of lasting poetry. I don't much like returning the compliment, but this seems a basic of this site. EGWish. Wignesan
