e-Paper Poetry of Vinx

Dire straits

In the jungle I am told never to rush,
I am told to always take things slow,

Before my eyes, I miss so much,
Yet, I am compelled to let them go

That if they were truly mine,
Back to me, they will always find…

I have never been really fine
Not taking courage in both hands

Outcome has been wide off the mark
Being civil and gentle truly fits

But I have nothing, when unpacked
Aside grasses growing under my feet.
