Ash Wednesday captures the genuine emotions of those who believe in God.
The words are like a soothing melody, which reveals the sense of security one has when they have faith.
In ways, what the poem also does is open the eyes of the readers. Eliot, already a respected poet, uses his gift of poetry, and crafts a poem about his belief in God. One may think Eliot uses this poem, and the serenity of it, to evangilize to nonbelievers, trying to persuade to them that 'this is how awesome God has been in my life, why not join me? '
To add to that, Ash Wednesday ibecomes more than just a poem, but a personal prayer of faith.
