What I learnt from the mouthy poets

28 Aug

Hello its ‘E’ again (aka Ezekiel 😀 doing work experience with Mouthy), in my previous blog I wrote down things I wanted to learn from Mouthy – I decided to show you how I learned them through the apt mode of poetry!  😀 

Time Travellers

They set to work with such determination.The speed at which they work; locked in a world only to come out when done, but they don’t realise it.

Start with the speed of a tornado
clearing and defeating all obstacles.

Unlimited ambitions and imaginations.
Lock up in a different world.Only to come out when the job is done.

The force behind the tornado, driving it.
Wait.Stop.No way! confusion emerges
Striking foolishly without mercy; all cells in the eyes, frozen as you stare.

Time goes by as the light shines on your faces.
The work is done, embrace yourself welcome back to the world.

The cycle starts again the next morning (maybe it will change the world one day).
They are submerged in a struggle to keep their eyes open as the cells tire helplessly but they strive to complete and so they do and I too.
