Short Ceilings.


Stand up child,
these walls are brick and the streets are too.
Steel bars make you right.
Stand up child, you've been placed in perfect sight.
When clouds are dark, we look to the skies
When black falls, we stare at the stars
Stand up child, let us take a good look at you.

    Loved this as it felt like you followed your natural flow and has subconscious meaning. The short ceilings make one feel taller. Great write.
    The stand up child almost sounds pushy initially but at the tie up line felt more adoration. Ty karen (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
