Hope on Paper

Poetry is written because
you don’t know how to get
this feeling out any other way.
You pour your rage, your desolation
ecstasy, joy, tears and peace
onto this fragile paper and,
somehow, it holds it firmly
You scream in terror, anguish
cry silently for life in general
and it seeps into your words.
Never hold it back
Never bow down
Let the ink flow and the tears run
May you find a light
Through the inscription of your dark.
