Poetry Stories

As William Wordsworth said, poetry is “the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings.” Indeed, poetry employs rhythm, language, rhetorical devices, and figures of speech to convey an imaginative, emotional experience. Poetry contrasts with prose, or everyday writing, and often uses elaborate diction and figurative language which conceals deeper meaning.

Men have ways of keeping their honor no matter. They hurt from their separation from God but hide it, yet tell tales of ways to get back to God. Men kill, not from fear, but to keep his story hidden. And God still loves him no matter.
