This week’s assignment was to do a metaphor poem. Here it is!
Though I am blind, I clearly see the path ahead.
I am as old as time, yet born again
I am the journey’s end
And the reason to travel both.
I am lost and I am found.
Though I have many leaders,
My followers make me.
And I am the one who cuts the chains.
Though I am your struggle, you will accept me freely.
For I am as solid as the sun-baked ground,
But I can be a mythical dragon never to be slayed.
But I am as still and calm as the tiniest pond on a summers day.
I am a healer, the balm upon your wounds, but
I am the Danneborg, The Oriflamme and the Banner of Saas,
For I have led out many battles on the field.
A joyful merry-go-round or a rollercoaster.
I am a heartbeat.
A moon and a star.
I am a simple lotus flower,
A wheel, a hand, a fish and a flaming chalice.
I am Lucy and
I am the only ship on the sea to Aslan’s Country.
Yet so many others
Will never understand the answer to my riddle,
Even though they find it.
