Kindness Of Our Kind


My poems are not made with silver threads
Or golden hues from a summer’s day
My poems instead are blood of my heart
Each beat gets me closer to curtain close

In this life
In this physical life
My soul, my eternal soul transcends
Immortality from the kindness of my kind

My poems are not made from riches
Or wealth beyond the dreams of my talents
I am rich with human love that suffice
I am rich beyond words can describe

In this life
In this physical life
My soul, my eternal soul transcends
Immortality from the kindness of my kind

Yes I turned my cheek the other way
More times than I can remember
Yes I was/ am humiliated and called a cowardly heart
I followed firmly the path of righteousness

In this life
In this physical life
My soul, my eternal soul transcends
Immortality from the kindness of my kind

Is this the best-written poem in the world?
Probably not: as I am judged on Symantec comps
But if you and I dwell on the meaning of life
Together touch the heart of love
Then we have fulfilled our destiny!

In this life
In this physical life
Our souls, our eternal souls transcend
Immortality from the kindness of our kind

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
