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

    The tide will rise a trillion times and never upon the same beach twice.
    Your days will begin and never the two the same will you see.
    Have your brave new day and celibrate the promise it brings.

    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
