A Path from Plath

Sylvia Plath

Formed a path

That went far beyond

The contrasts

Of masculinity

And femininity,

And social change

Actually does happen,

So a poetry collection

That references

The Little Mermaid

Uncovers the mysteries

That surround society,

So whether on land

Or within the depths of the sea,

Never underestimate

The power of poetry,

And if William Shakespeare

Could combine tragedy

With comedy

Through the ethereal qualities

Of Romeo and Juliet,

Then Sylvia Plath’s writing

Would suggest

That writing beautifully

Involves time well-spent,

So do much more

Than just help humanity,

But attempt to impact the world

Indelibly and permanently
