Fold, rethink, unfold.
Poetry pearled in paper,
What shape do you take?
Written May 15, 2014, about how life can be so alternately beautiful and frustrating. I know that, at least for this blind chick, origami is both fascinating and a bitch--I kind of had a love-hate relationship with it in elementary school, lol. Anyway, this is about how I feel after today ... like I'm not sure whether to comb my hair or pull it all out, ha.

This is part of my unintentional "Life in [Insert Concept Here]" haiku series. Similar works follow:

Life in BlocksBuild, collapse, rebuild.
Mama, I don't want to play
This game anymore.

Life in CatchSo many curveballs ...
I've never been great at catch.
Guess I ought to learn.

Hi there! I've chosen you as the 47th person for my 200 Comments Project Challenge. Basically I'm giving comments to 200 different people in a time frame within a week :D (Big Grin)

I think this is rather interesting and thought provoking. I think it can be interpreted as different meanings because you talk about life in such an honest and generalised way. The last line is such an intriguing question as it offers the reader food for thought as to what person they want to be in the long run or something like that. Still this was very fascinating to read :)

Exactly. It's about wonderment of the openness in one's future. I actually wrote it during a very sad time but was trying to find hope in my own writing. Thank you for the thoughtful comment!

And BOOM. Did anyone hear that? That was the sound of a thousand philosophy books being turned into paper airplanes and cranes.

I love this! It popped out at me while browsing the DA poetry section and then I found out it was your excellent writing, blackoutpoet. :)
