The Perfect Purpose Of Poetry

Within the human hearts that beat, God's rhythm sets the tone,
Such that each soul feels incomplete each time that it's alone...
Yet poetry has filled the need to cure that loneliness
And grant the ones who hear or read a share of happiness!

When thinking of the positives surrounding us each day,
It's poetry that often lifts with gifts that help portray...
A gentle verse or precious prose or something fanciful,
Can offer us some sweet repose that's like a miracle!

From sacred psalms that David wrote, to holy hymns in schools,
It's poetry that gets my vote, its passion never cools...
There's someone out there even now who's deep in thought again,
With furrowed lines upon his brow as lines flow from his pen...

He's not a shepherd or a king, he's just at home, sat down
And his brilliant brain seeks something to help to ease your frown...
Our words can change the world we see, turn hatred into love...
The perfect purpose of poetry? It's pleasing God above!

Within the human hearts that beat, God's rhythm sets the tone,
Such that each soul feels incomplete each time that it's alone...
Yet poetry has filled the need to cure that loneliness
And grant the ones who hear or read a share of happiness!
