An Offering of Poetry

by Mohamed Saloo

Squiggly lines on tree made pulp

That’s all it is

Composition of ideas to plead a case

That’s all it is

Fascinating terms and elaborate expressions

That’s all it is

Pondering minds in verbal wit

That’s all it is

A story to shiver the reader’s spine

That’s all it is

A madman’s carving in drowning ink

That’s all it is

A portion of a soul vulnerable and quivering

That’s all it is

An opinion shared of oppressive lives

That’s all it is

A loveless couplet of hearts true pain

That’s all it is

A scream from the depths of darkened sorrow

That’s all it is

A pain stained tear concealed by a gleaming smile

That’s all it is

A share of emotion with a fearless  judgement

That’s all it is

An offering of poetry

That’s all it really is.
