Sonnet: Poets Are Powerful Souls

A poet weighs most people's hearts with ease,
And is not carried off by masked a face;
He knows when someone tries to praise or tease;
He sees the truth, untruth of feigned a gaze!

Do not belittle poets as if weak;
Their special faculties are developed much;
Nevertheless, they want the truth to speak;
Their words uttered by mouth have healing touch.

Yet, poets try their best to change the world;
Their thinking minds peruse the crimes on earth;
They're unaffected by abuses hurled;
An instrument in God's hands, they're since birth.

A poet good wields more pow'r than one thinks;
Authoritatively, his thoughts he inks.
