Poems Outside the Fold

is not a combination
of words
assembled together
to produce some
enchanting sentences.

It is much greater than that.
It is the canal
that permits the expression
of feelings that
invites others to
live every word
they read.

It offers the reader
the opportunity
to move beyond their
a unique view
of a universe beheld by others.

It provides
a platform
to celebrate,
to rejoice,
to mourn,
to suffer,
using the instrument of words.
