Unbending

Unbending

A Poem by D. Connolly
"

New ideas are a good thing. They have the potential to help us do better at the next opportunity. Stagnancy is slow death.

"

Beware the reed that does not bend

             You will break at the first strong wind

Or be torn from your shallow well

             Left to wonder why you fell

I really do love the first two lines. I conclude from the first two lines that they are about being creative and flexible in thinking and presenting ideas. The first two lines also made me think about how one should creative and flexibly thinking in life. Life gives us weird circumstances and sometimes we have to think creatively to get out of them.

I also love the last two lines as well. Creativity and brainstorming ideas does insinuate failure and if we don't do that, we cannot learn. I hope that makes sense.

Lovely write.

Thanks for posting! Have a great day!

They say that "A little learning is a dangerous thing", but if it makes you think,then you become more wary and flexible.

Sometimes it helps to have people around you that are pliable enough to try new ideas too.

Tight rhymes and strong message Dani. We need to bend - sometimes over backwards if we were in the wrong.
okay ...okay...I have one for ya - If a reed falls over in a swamp and no-one is there to hear it - does it make a sound?
