We Are a Poem


You will not 
    seperate us.
For it is hate
    and love that made us.
It is the great and the small
    that reverberate within our bones.
It is every syn and antonym,
every opposite every known,
    the many, the alone.
         We are a poem.
You will never 
    isolate us
for it is truth
    and art that made us.
         We are a poem.

    Very well written. I like the format too. Yip.. that is right... poems have a life of their own.. we write for ourselves, and sometimes... if we are brave, share with others. Read my poem "Ulteriority"-- exactly on this topic.
