An original poem by Coeur d’un poète.
To be a poet is to write about the world
as a whole, in beauty as in darkness.
Life and death aren’t opposites, but perspectives
in the middle path between warm and cold.
Being a poet is about being both wrong and right,
to see life in all its light, both day and night.
It’ the holistic art of walking a fine line
and setting one’s sights in a mind beyond fine.
Darkness and light are perspectives, not endgames;
poems strive to present, far from those names.
What matters is the message that musters meaning
to the human that masters true meaningful wording.
To be a poet is to be the bard of balance,
bringing the brightness of equality to unity.
Whether light or dark, words must feel of justice,
tell signs of balance and share the depth of humanity.
