The Scorpion

The Scorpion

A Poem by emipoemi

By fifteen stars across the darkened sky

The fate and features of mid-Autumn born

Are firmly marked, and through the spans of morn

And night prove more profound than meets the eye.


Enthralling as the solemn dusking day,

Determined as contenders for the win,

Protective as the boon ’twixt kith and kin,

Loquacious but when prompted with a say.


And yet, beneath the wonders of their soul,

Beneath the dynamism of their flair,

There lies the raging hunger for control.


And curled behind the twinkle of their stare,

The shadow of a sting foreshows its role:

Should any sting a Scorpio- beware!

The fear of the sting is a solem reminder of trust, control and finality.

I found many characters to fit me perfectly, others are so far from me, then I learned that there are many others things that affect You beside Your zodiac sign, if You are familiar with birth chart and numerology for example, You will know what I mean. we are being misunderstood because of our sign "name", still I'm proud to be a Scorpion, and never for a moment I wish I'm not!
