Poet's Charter by Bob Atkinson

Poet's Charter
(c)2013 Bob Atkinson
if we solidify our nature
into one big ball of yarn
how could we define forever
what we have become

what purpose do we have here
in the warmth of this bright sun
which tomorrow will shine lighter
and give us more new sons

do we shake the hand of god
and thank him for our lives
or do we repay this kindness
with descriptions of our trials?

what can we do with life
more than wild ones of the forest
who forage for their supper at
the beginning of the darkness

display our insides out
to those who've never breathed
telling them about our loves
and outlook toward our seed

this, the poet's charter
becomes our great beginning
document what we've seen
and to the future give it
