The portal to poetry

Tell me- is it the desire to be immortal 
when all is made bare- subsequent to walking that portal-
to a terrain where words are a weapon 
alliteration, rhyme, personification all part of the mission-
free verse can bare twice the ammunition-
moral attachment to add wit and intuition-
or perhaps words are used in defense-
against beasts - incestuous predators that need returning to past tense
whatever the intention 
never cease to add fuel - infinite attention 
to the continual ascension
provided when residing within this dimension-

The End
