Not only is written to be spoken,


It is meant to be experienced,


The words on the page are as notes,

     To be played

Motions run through,

    As life sparks spring


Rhythm, rhyme, robbing the most secret

    Ideas of the soul

Heart pounding as the letters sting,

    A once broken piece

Muscles cannot become strong enough

    To bear the weight

Emotions as stirring as the hurricane,

    Just hit land


To find the meaning

    Look closer

For you may find- a piece of your soul,

    A piece of your mind

Open the gates,

    Unlock the doors

Don’t pull back,

    Your journey has just begun
