Poems for each Enneagram Type

The Enneagram is a wondrous thing

It brings us strength and helps us sing

It's a tool to guide us through life's strife

It helps us understand our inner life

The Enneagram, oh so wise

A tool to see beyond the guise

It shows us our true essence

And where we tend to victimise

The nine points of the Enneagram

Each one a different path to take

Each one a window to our soul we make

Each one a way to reach our goal

Each one a way to make us whole

The Enneagram is a symbol of our fate

It helps us look within and see our state

It helps us analyse the choices we make

And use the wisdom to make us great

The Enneagram is a map of our soul

It helps us better understand our role

It helps us on our journey of life

And take us where we make things bright

The Enneagram is a tool for us all

To use as a way to stand tall

It helps us find our true selves

And helps us reach our inner wealth
