I wrote this poem as a submission for 2017’s poetryonbuses.org project.
The topic is Your Body of Water. I hope that the metaphor inspires :)
I am fluid and move with grace,
Eroding the path I follow,
Leaving my mark in this human rat race.
I cleanse what I pass,
Leaving what’s underneath
Revealed to shine like glass.
Rediscover what you’ve hidden
Beneath the dust.
Rise above and seize your days
Before they rust.
