Giving Up - Poem by Lyn Paul

Am I getting closer
To piecing this puzzle
It was just getting harder
Harder and Harder
I felt pieces were lost
They just wouldnot fit
Giving up
But with alot of careful thinking
A little adjusting
Stepping away
Breathing the air
Watching the waves
Covering the footprints
Then the flight of the pelicans
Creating their own puzzle
I knew then
My puzzle
Would be completed
I had come this far
So why give up on the puzzle
It is hard
But, Yes!
I will solve it

    I believe that this poem is beautiful! Meaning it inspired me and it made me see things clearer. Comparing giving up to a puzzle, the fact that you basically put preserver and never give up in a form of poetry is great and you did a great job! ! (Report) Reply

    I like jigsaw puzzles. They are relaxing pastimes. Your poem can be interpreted in many ways depending on the reader's fancy - I like it a lot! (Report) Reply
