The Gift of Words

Days of old, days of new
Beckoning on all for a revival of words
A re-incarnation of an age gifted with rhymes
To correct the dispute of the current times

In a world where words reign
Many will seek an opportunity to feign
Deceive the masses who lack this talent
Instead of using this gift for their betterment

Many seek this rare gift in sacred places
But it dwells within the bosom of a few
A selected few endowed from birth
To bless and help all with their unique flair

These words help to win the hearts of many
Lift spirits who have been dormant for ages
Bring peace where it is most needed
And causes an awakening where minds are asleep

After all this world was created with words
Let’s fulfill this creation with our words
Happy World Poetry Day

    continuation . the third stanza has a little bit of humour. like seriously, do you mean people go to such extent to seek for that gift. this stanza tend to debunk my conceptions about how society nowadays distaste poetry. May be that is how i see it. the last two concluding stanza's were cool. it really spelled out and summarized what you wanted to send out. i enjoyed this poem.

    i like the angle with which you seek to view poetry. I don;t know whether i am allowed to criticize but in my point of view, i saw that you described poetry as the orator of the past only. (as seen in the first stanza). please poetry also predicts and talks about the present too. also, i like the way you talked about how some poets abuse poetry for their selfish interest in the second stanza. to be continued
