To poem

From living paragraphs 

To mourning and reflective 

Verses and sentences. 

From an unquiet mind and heart To a vivid piece 

Of paper and art. 

From words that, alone, would not have as much meaning 

As a word with a story to tell. 


A point of view was changed, 

A life was changed, 

A moment was transformed, 

And a person was touched. 

All of that 

Because of the mourns and unsolved issues 

From a disturbed mind.

All of that 

Because of the power a word can hold. 

All of that 

Because of fingers or a mouth

That could no longer hold itself from relieving 

Feelings and thoughts 

Of a living soul.

A soul that 

Needed to break free. 

A living soul that 

Needed to live: 

We all need this. 


There is no end to a story. 

There is no end to a life.

There is no end to a heart or mind. 

No end to anything

That once lived, 

For its life can keep going

If there is only another 

Living heart and mind 

To bring back that life.

The author's comments:

"To poem" for me is to express myself in a way that that hearts, souls, and minds can be touched and communicate with each other. It is to listen and to sing, scream, mourn, or just speak, not necessarily with your ears but with your self
