Featured Review on this writing by LE. Berry


The end is nigh or is it now? 

The sky is grey or is it loud?

The mind is strange or is it deep?

The present a gift one can never keep.

 

The life is hard or is it fast?

The time has come or has it past?

The sun is warm or is it rage?

The story always begins with a page.

 

The tree is tall or is it high?

The work is tough but still we try.

The oxen pull or do they plow?

The people who love live in the now.

 

The now, the present, synonyms you see.

The same, yet different all are we.

The here, right here, I can't hear me.

 

I envy those who live in the now.

They never need reflect on or think of, what is or was to be.

I really loved your use of word comparison in definition. Nice piece Najima.
