The complications of Breaking up


Confusion
Bang! Its hit you
The Solution
The conclusion to your problem

Fright
Scream! It hits you
The reality
The conclusion of your solution

Sadness
Silence! It hits you
The atmosphere
The conclusion of your conversation

Confusion
Crash! It hits you
The today
The conclusion of your decision

Happiness
Shout! It hits you
The beauty
The conclusion of all of your sadness

Finally
Finally! It hits you
The truth
Your conclusion was right for you!

    This poem can be places almost to any difficult situation, Your solutions at the time always seem the right ones but can occur to be the wrong conclusion hence the quick flow of reactions and how the reactions change over time. It takes time to realise that what once was your solution to all your problems although at the time maybe wrong and have caused a ripple of consequences ultimately is the best conclusion for yourself.

    True enough, Gracie Lou - sometimes there's only you that can make and take a decision. The confusion -> solution -> action -> revelation 'flow' is as clear from the form of the poem as it is in life (but only when we have the luxury of looking back!) . (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
