If you’re thinking of taking a pen
To explore your innermost thoughts
Then today’s the day to do it:
It’ll help unravel your knots.
The UN’s World Poetry Day
Is a chance to feel what’s real
In the deepest darkest depths
Of your starkest startling dreams.
Whether rage takes hold in angry red
Or the blues cry over the page
Trust what comes, let it all spill out:
Free your soul from its strangled cage.
