A Poem

 A poem is unique:
Only one person can write it,
Many may read it,
Yet, the response will vary.

All who read it,
Will ponder;
Their past,
Their future,
Or related experiences,
Then react to the effects
As it penetrates one's soul.

So, to genuinely enjoy
Another's poem; one must
Understand the words chosen by the poet,
Feel the words within the self
Ponder the underlying unstated.

Some may never grasp the meaning:
While others will remember
Its heart-felt touch forever. ©
