A simple truth - a poem by Ms Moem, English poet  @msmoem

A Simple Truth
How do you love a person
Who’s no longer there to love?
How do you bear the pain
When you’ve already borne enough?
How do you remember day
When you only live at night?
How do you escape their shadow
When you no longer see their light?
How do you keep on swimming
When you struggle just to float?
How do you keep on sailing
When the storm upturns your boat?
How do you keep breathing?
How do you get through?
It’s frustratingly simple but
Somehow, you just do.

A Simple Truth is a short poem by Ms Moem.

Lost | A Poem

Lost - poem by Ms Moem. @msmoem -  Sometimes taking the easy route and letting yourself get swept away can mean you lose sight of where you really wanted to go.

Lost
She set out with intention;
Thought she knew the way to go
But as she wandered clumsily
The winds of change did blow.
They took her like a feather
And she floated on their breeze
Soaring so far above the forest
She could barely see the trees.
At first, she was astounded
Just how far she went each day
But eventually she realised
She’d completely lost her way.
