At schools' and heroes' graves In filled stadiums and banks Pumps pride in my heart's tanks Awakening the beast in me

The writing is pregnant with emotion and sense with especially awkward dialogue, but for all the premise of the poems was brilliant and paints meaningful implants.

The main function of a poem is to convey an idea or emotion in beautiful language. It paints a picture of what the poet feels about a thing, person, idea, concept, or even an object.  Energy Mavaza grabbed the attention of the readers through the use of vivid words which gives emotional shades, figurative language, and other feelings which put permanent images in the hearts of many.

The energy used by Energy in this energetic bundle of emotions  is tango able energy one can feel and feel again.
