Plastic, painted bangles adorn your wrists

Another ring for every chance missed

An arm of courage, spins hoops of fear

One for every disasterous year.

So many bracelets, too many mistakes

Every circle feeds your love for hate

A personal memoir, A hell on your wrists

Another cotton twist for every meaningless kiss


A bracelet for hope

A ring for love

A bangle for glory



Every colour, every emotion

One to mark, every painful commotion


Wear just one now

To commemorate the fight

For the peace and the faith

And the whole of your life


Snap all the bracelets that hid all your pain

And promise yourself, you'll not be tangled again.

This is awesome Vee! The way yo uuse the tangling of bangles and compare it to life itself is flawless and poetic genius in my eyes. I am sitting here shaking my head at how well written this is, rhytmic and so well metered.   Hugs,   Henry

I think this is great.  So original.  So simple but also so profound.  It's the kind of poem that sticks with you.  --David

I like this, very much. I love the metaphor, it is very current and it works well with the whole piece. 
Great job V.
