Transformation

A poem is just a poem
Until you invoke the divine.
Then it’s a prayer.

Stanzas are just stanzas
Until you add music.
Then it’s a song.

A voice is just a voice
Until we sing together.
Then we’re a chorus.

A heart is just a heart
Until it joins another.
Then it’s a family.

A life is just a life
Until it finds meaning.
Then it’s an example.

An idea is just an idea
Until it’s put in motion.
Then it’s a movement.

A breath is just a breath
Until we breathe in greatness.
Then it’s inspiration.

The world is just the world
Until we transform it.
Then it’s history.

A poem is just a poem.
Until it’s read.
