Rubberband - Poem by Practicing Poetess

Christmas music playing in the background,
Reading other members' sad poems.
Life is quite a bittersweet mixture,
Pulling you in both directions.
Like a rubberband, I won't snap
But stretch instead, gaining resilience.
You have to learn to bend and flex,
If you don't want to break.

    I like your analogy between a rubber band and a person being resilient
    and prepared to stretch not break. A thought-provoking poem for Christmas.
