What Is It That Poetry Can Do?

What Is It That Poetry Can Do?

For, what is it that poetry can do?
It could make tremble a single leaf of a tree among many, and make you its master
It could let you climb on clouds while you are on the ground and are finding your stand 
When your heart aches and you find pain in others  
When you stumble and see others falling too
Poetry shall make you rise and see how lowly mankind lives 
In poverty and in minds cave
In politics and in game of shame – it will show you how civilizations have crumbled. 
And how have mankind failed to counter disasters like the World War and now Corona
Poetry can do all the talkings
Yet, explain in little ways 
That we exist and our being is questioned by Nature time and again 
Perhaps, poetry is the answer you choose to reply with 
Empty yet louder, the voice of your self 
Perhaps through poetry you want us to hear it.
