Poems by Robert M. Hensel

"Peace of Mind"

Carry me out the ocean, where
my drifting thoughts flow free.
Guide them to a far distant land,
that only the mind can see.
There I shall paint a great portrait,
of what this world should be.
A place without senseless wars,
and human poverty.

"The Poet"

Words flow onto paper like rain ,
forming giant rivers of unseen lands.
The very force guides us along a
journey that holds of great adventure.
We are the explorers of the literary world.
We must find the courage to write
what others are unable to,
with the greatest of passion.
A poet dreams. and then must portray
his visions upon the page that lies before him.
It is the beauty of all things that inspires
us to communicate in such a way.
A man does not wake up one day,
and decide to become a poet.
It must live in the very blood that
courses through his veins.
He is the creator of a world,
only he has known.
He is the actor and director, of all
that speaks out through his pen.
He is a man of all men,
Visionary of all visionaries.
What you haven't seen, he has.
What you can't say, he can.
For he is the poet.
