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.
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.
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.
