ode to poetry

in the space
of twenty four hours
murder and mayhem
starvation and deprivation
slavery and struggle
compete for glory
as the world turns.
each heart beats
each soul reaches
to live
and pursue happiness.
it’s a new day.
today there is poetry
for all that has passed
and will come to pass
as the world turns
and each heart beating
each soul reaching
for liberty
writes an ode
to life.
