"The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud."- Coco Chanel
Life isn't about surviving the storm, it's about learning to dance in the rain.


I write this poem to,
Those who hide in the shadows,
And cover their eyes.

Not to brave souls who,
Choose to stand up and fight but,
To anonymous.

Life isn't measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments which take your breath away.

You are only as strong as your weakest link.

Great job, very meaningful!

I really loved this haiku - it's absolutely beautiful. If you could find time to check out my Haiku I'd really appreciate it. I'm new to this site so I don't get many views. I hope one day I can make something as great as this. I love things about anonymity. I often feel anonymous even around people I know so I really liked this haiku.

“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.”
― Henry David Thoreau

Beautiful! Just goes to show how little words are needed to create something so meaningful.

Best thing I have ever read. I really love how you point out the efforts of the people that never get talked about. This seriously an amazing piece of work. I think, if you wanted to, considering your talent, you could make this a novelization really easily.

I disagree with cameronjay with the fact that I think this poem was VERY deep. Wonderful work, crubs3!

I second that! I would love if all haikus were as good as this one. P.S. Could you comment on my haiku, Footprints, please. You would be helping an aspiring writer.

No it doesn't. Poem can be pronounced two different ways. (Pome instead of po-em).
