Poem – ” Astound Off The Ground “

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “



You are surrounded

you’ve surrounded yourself

with people

who in tiny little ways

chop you down every day

they have convinced you

 that you are not rare

not extraordinaire

you are – their personal little tiny star

they bask in the descending glare

it’s time to fly

time to cut the tie

that holds you and your art to the ground

you haven’t even lifted off … – time to astound

you are surrounded…

  1. Wonderful way of expressing how society (friends as a critical element here) constraint our goals…very well presented in your poem.
