Just a Poem

I am so sorry that it has been two weeks since my last post! My life is insanely busy at the moment. I've hardly had time to sit down and think, let alone write. Maybe that's why I've felt so higgledy-piggledy lately...

Anyways, I have a poem to share. I wrote this back in 2010 before I really started writing poetry like I do now. It is still one of my favorites. Maybe because it came out of a season of brokenness. Or maybe because it defines my passion for words and music and rhythm. Or maybe just because.

A poem is a song without the tune
   A silent melody
Softly to the heart it sings
   A quiet remembering
A song is what you would hear
   If the heart could speak

That's where rhythm comes from -
   The quiet heart's beat
Listen to the rhythm
   Emotion's purest form
The heart beats strong in happiness

   And shallowly when torn
Feeling not expressed
   Stay bottled up inside
This results only in heartache
   And caused us to hide
So release your inner struggles
   And in your joys stand tall
The best way to open up your heart
   Is a poem after all
