Creative minds shine through silent shadows Freer thoughts run along the edges Of boundary lines untied Distracted less distressed Confinement now a guest In a safer space to play Separate states arrange personal traits To trust the chance of expectations Enforce the plight of set objectives Opportunities arise to compliment Though every aim cannot be met We suit our direction and intent
no string is worth cutting if you could thread through the knot carefully without dismantling both endings.
This is a short work that defies my previous poem "the untied knot". Centenarians who have managed to live and love in a lasting relationship left me a lesson that most people nowadays tend to give up easily. In the concept that when something is broken, it is now so easily replaced. People who truly love thread through things carefully, work through pain with grace. I'm not a veteran in these kind of things, but I think it's important to know that even in the tough times, pain teaches us to grow in adversity. However on the flip side, paradoxically, one should not allow themselves to forget their worth when they give their all. It's all a matter of moderation & balance. Here's something I'd like to impart:
moment of grace (n.) the point where people are forced to make a decision that either enables them to transcend a circumstance or succumb to it.
