Bow and Arrow

my friend told me something very interesting, something i'd never thought of before

he said,

So you know how a bow works right? for a bow and arrow

I said,

yeah of course i do

he said,

you know the string of the bow?

I said

yeah

he said,

think of all yourself as the arrow

I said,

okay

he said,

and think of all your problems as the string of the bow

they have to pull you backwards to launch you forward

my mind was blown

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
My country
Our world
