A Procession, Shall We? . - Poem by Philip Jose

Let us take all our possessions,
And go for a procession.
The bricks that we arranged enviably
And painted pompously to live in,
What of them? , shall we take them too
-On our back? , like snails.

    A poem speaks to every one, in its own unique way, as the readers strive to find his own reflection in the words, the earnings of our lives are no doubt very much valuable but one should not be too clingy to them, one should have a heart to sacrifice them too.....loved the concept, the metaphor and overall very nice bro..

    ((((((The possession- The bricks that we arranged enviably and painted pompously to live in)))))) .. What a rational reviewal! ! !
    But live only for the need, not for luxury!
    We will not carry them with us when we go with the wind, ,
    But human nature is like a carpenterbee nowadays, ,
    'Tis a wonderful poem, excellent penning! ! !
    Top marks for you! ! !
