My friend I say,
your heart is like a chunk of clay
yet you are the only potter who can form it.
So decide what you will make.

I like how this poem makes you think about life. The theme is deep even though the poem is simple yet concise. Love it.

Thank you; however, the whole point is that the reader has to decipher the poem by themselves.
