One that embraces your deserted emotions
One that puts your thoughts in brownian motions

One that listens to your silence
One that slays your inner demons

One that comforts your aching heart
One that helps venting out that angst

One that completes that unfinished love 
One that ends a war by being the peaceful dove

One that nourishes like a Buddha bowl
One that is a balm to the chaotic soul

One that whispers lullabies at night 
One that makes everything shine bright

One that gives solace when no one can
One that takes off like a vagabond van

One that becomes a pillow to your quiet tears
One that shields you against your fears

One that makes you brave to take on Goliaths
One that lets you overcome deaths 

One that is the moon of the midnight
One that removes darkness by being that tiny light

One that humbles you in front of the meditating mountains
One that lets you enjoy the effervescent fountains 

One that giggles and dances with the playful waves
One that is the glimmer of hope in the prison of slaves

One that wages a war without picking a gun
One that makes solitude also fun

One that traps you in its artistic symphony
One that sets you free with its epiphany

One that helps you bloom like a flower
One that bring down regimes and takes down those in power

One that awakens when the senses are numb
One that raises a voice when everyone stands dumb

One that screams when your voice isn’t loud enough
One that crossed the bridge for you, when you couldn’t

One that has a life changing role
One that feeds your hungry soul

Yeah that One is Poetry
And
Poetry Matters
