The Rug

I look at the rug
Lying limply
On top of the open air vent.

It reminds me of
Struggling to get a taste of oxygen.

I think to myself,
That if the rug can live
With people trampling on it every day,

Their feet
Pushing down on
Its bursting bubble of air supply,

Why can’t I?

I really love how you compare the most random things into your work! It really makes your work stand out against everyone else's and it really let's me know that you can do anything you set your mind to do. I loved how you compared a little rug that means nothing to us humans to the most important things in our body, (well, it might not be most important) our precious lungs. Keep up the great work!
