People often say poetry is a thing of the past or there isn't an audience for it. I believe these naysayers are wrong. The art of poetry can never go out of style. It is filled with creativity.
Poetry in my mind will always withstand the test of time. Here are some of my own personal poems.
In my solitude, I dabble with fate
and write my own song
The track spills over with
tears as I count the years
learnt in trial and error
In my solitude I am she
My River Nile
This river so momentously deep that
it bares the tide of a past not yet forgotten
Slave workers on fields of cotton
My River Nile flows like tear drops on a
cold winter night.
The definition of Peace
Peace is a thing that anchors in
A short lived high
A free spot to just
Peace is a memory
that put our lives in perfect
It is a moment of silence
to remember those who have
Peace is a song
written by the brave
I dreamt a dream within a dream
It was the most flattering
My mind a island of its own
The difference was this dream
felt like home
I don't think I will get there
grey haired and frail
My little body moving at
the speed of an snail
The big seventy something
My thoughts a little wiser
If it ever happens
I will pledge to live
my life with grace and discernment
For the Record
My name should be Susan because
I'm so full of personality
My head a puzzle with many pieces
I am she the poet
painting pictures of art with every
word scribbled to paper
I think, I have done it all
For the Record
