Patience Is The Key - Poem by asma bahrainwala

Though life is a creased cloth,
It can be
Ironed out.

Though life is a confounded pickle,
It can be
Sorted out.

Though life is a spider’s web,
It can be
Straightened out.

Patience is the key
If you
Want to live.

    It is easy to write a long poem full of words. It is very difficult to write one like this and still be able to communicate. Great technique. (Report) Reply
