Poetic words

The words they flow,
sometimes in rhyme;
Describe emotions,
feelings sublime

Rave about nature,
of fields so green;
Mountains, forests
the oceans between

Love and laughter
from days gone by,
Beautiful memories,
times when you cry

Ways to express
the state of the world,
Anger and abuse
towards you, once hurled

Poetry gives voice
to all this and more;
short, simple means
to help you roar
