A Poem by Poetic License



Such a small word.


So few letters.


One syllable.


So fragile.


So much can happen in such a tiny span of four typed letters.




You meet.


You share.


You care.


You learn.


You choose.




You take.


You give.


You hope.


You lose.


You gain.


You hurt.




You die.


You live.


You fail.


You grieve.


You fly.


You desire.


You scream.


You rage.




You collapse.


You concede.


You try.


You reach.


You hold.


You yearn.


All the emotions in the world.


Held in just four ordinary letters.








Easily broken.


Occasionally lost.


Inadvertently discarded.


Should you chance to receive it,


Open immediately and handle with care.
