Gorgeous - Poem by Moth Harris

When will you see
It's not up to you and me
and life's not perfect
It was never meant to be
The key is finding peace within
and you might not be able to find it in him
Or in her, but for sure
Someone as beautiful as you
Can pull through
Just realize it's true
and keep walking down the road
We both know and grow old
Then winter comes, and it's cold
but if you keep walking
You wont shiver no more
I promise...

    That is lovely!
    It totally gave me the shivers (and that's a good thing)

    I agree about the symbolism! I love the image of not shivering on the journey through winter... beautiful stuff!
    All the best

    There is just so much symbolism in your work, and I love that. You should really get in touch with the SYMBOLISTS POETS of the 1800s to inspire you some more. (Report) Reply
