CLEAR YOUR LUNGS WITH POETRY / Poem by Roula Pollard

CLEAR YOUR LUNGS WITH POETRY

Every day I return home
through a different poetry route, since
Poetry has rooted so deeply in my life
since we planned to plant Poetry trees together
around the world, to sculpt verses
on eucalyptus’ tree bodies, like “I love you”
surrounded by inspiring letters of love.
I care, we care too to finish unfinished world affairs
through good will, to stop innocent
blood blinding the human heart through hate.

Now, hold my hand sister, wipe my unseen tears
show me your strength, your courage, brother
as we live together on the bloody grounds
of an extreme will, let’s try, try now, all with one soul
to lift on our shoulders too, life’s weight like words
to lessen the weight of past blood
we all with the same good will, let’s try
to plant peace
on the absurd grounds of our minds
on our hearts, let’s plant love words
scented by positive Poetry.
