Unfinished…

ancient, dated, books, poetry

My life is an ancient library

with time-worn tedious steps to climb;

inside are dark cavernous spaces

with old precious books of fine writing

but yet, there are still many plain pages

waiting to be written on.

This is Life…

This is life,
a beautiful, dirty fighter.
filling your eyes with splendour
then punches you in the guts,
with a fist full of pain
that breaks invisible parts
you never knew you had.

This is life,
shaped like a beautiful city,
charming yet endowed with chaos
glitzy upper streets with ghettos to the side;
just when you thought things looked rosy
the stench of its rawness sucks the air out of you
leaving you gasping and watering your face.

Seeing the cute figurine of a white elephant in the room made me chuckle. That’s not a very mundane item but I couldn’t resist clicking.

Elephant in the room” or ” Elephant in the living room ‘ is an English metaphorical idiom for an obvious truth that is going unaddressed. The idiomatic expression also applies to an obvious problem or risk no one wants to discuss and a “white elephant” is a possession which its owner cannot dispose of and whose cost, particularly that of maintenance, is out of proportion to its usefulness.

Well, that said, I don’t think the little elephant is such a huge possession, but maybe the owner has other problems that they are not willing to talk about 😉
