The Point Is This

Until a point is posited, Its position is unclear; Whether on a pencil Or belief embraced so dear. Until a point is set upon A concrete place of view, Its meaning is unknown, Its validity not true. Until a point is taken up And held close to the breast, Defended and declaimed upon, Its measure is at test. Until a point is proven, Its fate remains unlearned; It has no merit without facts, Its placement it must earn. Until a point is made concrete There is no point in trying; The point is this, it needs a place To prove the point’s defining.

Deb, it is not easy to write and submit a poem for this contest. In fact, I feel this is one of the more difficult contests I have faced during my short time on this site. However, you have turned the trick and created a contending poem for this contest.
