Window to the Soul


There are many things that tells
who we are, but none like a poem.
A poem is the window to the soul,
revealing our most inner thoughts.
A poem tells a story from the heart.

A poem can tell a story of life, love,
 happiness, tragedy and secrets untold.

A poem is the brush in an artist's hand,
painting a picture of places in far off lands.
A poem about God, faith, wars or outer space.

A poem about beautiful birds, honey bees,
colorful flowers and old oak trees.

A poem can heal a broken heart or
tell a lover goodbye.
A poem can be read by kings, queens
or a pauper with the same tear in the eye.

A poem can make you laugh, shiver,
sigh or cry, emotions that never die.
A poem can take you to exotic places
you've never been and back again.

A poem can be appreciated or hated,
it's all in the eye of the beholder.

A poem is the window to the soul,
quenching the thirst of an avid
wonderer.
