Our Poetic License

To obtain our poetic license,
We do not need to complete an application,
Show multiple forms of identification,
And wait for a document
To arrive in the mail.

God gave us our poetic license
When He created us.
It gives us the freedom to choreograph
The rhythms, rhymes, and meters
Of our life dance.
It endows our voice
With silver toned songs
Accompanied by the harp strings
Of similes and metaphors.

With poetic license in hand,
Our playful contemplative souls
Find artistic pleasure
In versifying every wondrous moment.
