Poetry Affects Eternity: Elizabeth Esguerra Castillo and Shahid Abbas

Elizabeth Castillo
Elizabeth:
Poetry and sunset they go together,
For indescribable words cannot just be uttered
The moment you lay your eyes on
Such magnificent poetic beauty.

Shahid:
Poetry is the language of the soul,
Love, peace, brotherhood, justice, and harmony are its goal 
The beauty which exists in every mind, 
Reminiscing lovely memories each time.

Elizabeth:
I am the poetry I write,
The cool breeze brushing your cheeks
The humming birds in a dreamy meadow,
The howling wolf on a mountain peak,
What would be this world without poetry tomorrow?

Shahid Abbas
Shahid:
Poetry is the love in ones' heart, 
I feel the universe and let it be my part 
The image of nature,
Allows us to appreciate all creatures.

Elizabeth:
Poetry affects eternity,
Though the world is in uncertainty
The verses will be passed on,
Inspire many future generations
We live in the shadow of life's poetry.

Shahid:
Poetry the core of the world,
The Universe exists in it's every word 
The passion
Which awake the dying nations.

Elizabeth:
A poet's word lives forever,
The lyrics of his song will linger
A thousand years may pass,
But poetry's legacy will last. 

Shahid:
No doubt we will be forever alive 
In the golden pages of literature,
The universe will read 
Of the beautiful creations we have.
