Move on and Be Strong


An in-depth chat with a raven

A rather dark but worthy discussion

 It’s foolish to believe there awaits a safe haven

In a world so full of imperfection

But the raven said we must embrace our flaws

Let those that judge drown in their guffaws

Let’s venture toward adventure

Pack our bags with wisdom and sense

Tidy loose ends with a seasoned self-lecture

It’s not foolish to believe there awaits a safe haven

Anything is possible for a strong-willed maven

    None of us are perfect, 🙂 or we would not be here for the experience 🙂 But I am so loving the adventure. 🙂 So loved your poem
    Have a Beautiful Christmas Eugenia xxx ❤

    Such a pertinent poem for me, and that’s a very wise raven. I’m moving on but not that strongly…..

    Sometimes what we see as flaws are just part of our character … qualities of our individual nature… (‘Not saying we’re perfect’ though ha!) Diane

      I believe flaws are part of our character. We are imperfectly perfect. Merry Christmas, Diane.

    I have seen ravens that have swallowed too much, of a lot more than guffaws. Poor birds had to waddle like penguins.

    It’s the flaws that make us perfect. Great poetry Eugenia.
