"Just go with the flow and you'll get where you need to go."


Flowers live
Easily
As faith dies,
Mothers give
Effortlessly
As baby cries

Light recedes
Eerily
As darkness prevails,
Combat proceeds
Extensively
As true love unveils

Beauty shines
Elegantly
As knowledge dims,
Bells chime
Endlessly
As war swims

Simplicity lives
Easily
As faith dies,
Trust gives
Entirely
As do lies.


The author's comments:
This is one of my shortest poems, but it has the most meaning behind its words. I set it up to be repetitive in a unique pattern and used some very carefully chosen words so as to apply a more powerful implication.
