ode to poetry

in the space

of twenty four hours

murder and mayhem

starvation and deprivation

slavery and struggle

compete for glory

as the world turns.

each heart beats

each soul reaches

to live

and pursue happiness.

it’s a new day.

today there is poetry

for all that has passed

and will come to pass

as the world turns

and each heart beating

each soul reaching

for liberty

writes an ode

to life.
