What is a poem?
It’s a series of words.
Its lines contain more
Than a rhyme to be heard.

What is a painting?
It is meant to express
A certain idea
That shouldn’t be suppressed.

What is a story?
It’s something to be told.
It’s happy or sad
Based off how it unfolds.

What is a prayer?
It’s something from the heart.
When words seem to fail,
All you must do is start.
