Little poem of mine, recite your way
Into a lonely heart where shadows play;
Oh, if you could only brighten its day!
Little poem of mine, gladden a soul,
Lost in confusion, far from its goal,
Bogged in illusion, out of its role.
Explain away sadness, melt away fear,
Strengthen a weakness, wipe off a tear,
Expel freakishness of thoughts unclear.
Lift up a spirit abused and neglected,
Quicken acceptance of a soul rejected,
Trigger a feeling well-directed.
And if one heart, one soul be raised,
Hope ignited, a spirit blazed,
Consider this poem rightfully praised.
