Poetry Is a One-Way Ticket

Sun, 07/03/2016 - 18:06 -- ReginaQ

Poetry is a one-way ticket

Taking me across oceans 

And into the Past


Poetry is a one-way ticket

To meet leaders, scholars, people

From far way lands

From another time

Step into their minds

Look through life from their eyes


Poetry is a one-way ticket

I leave that self behind

I become who I really am

And I rise

I can whisper, sing, and scream

I can sketch and paint

These words are mine and I am theirs


Poetry is a one-way ticket 

To bring everyone together

Language, Time, Distance

Are no longer barriers

It turns me into we

And only then can we learn from each other


This poem is about: 
Our world
