Words

 

I am a lawyer.

I do battle with words.

 

But some things are just too deep for words to say.

To express our pain, we must find another way.

 

Poetry has its own language, the language of the heart.

Through a poem, our healing can finally start.

 

Sometimes the pain is so great, we can feel it in our chest.

The tension, the pressure, a heart full of stress.

 

Pen to paper, we can find our way when life takes its toll.

Poetry heals our heart and feeds our soul.

 

Life can feel shallow but our feelings run deep.

Sometimes they make us laugh, sometimes they make us weep.

 

We can always read a few good lines, a poem for our soul to keep.
