Poetry – Smiling Origami Swan


In this free verse poetry, “Smiling Origami Swan”.

Life challenges can reduce us to nothing, people can be cruel. Struggles can be weighted rocks taking us to a dark blue. But life can also be viewed in perspective moments and we can accept the bitter pieces and turn them into beautiful blessings. Polish your life skills and take every life lesson and own it with a smile.

Image of free verse poetry, "Smiling Origami Swan".

Folded like an origami swan.
Was her life of creases and lines,
so infinite but yet so small.
Nothing but a fleck on a small wall.
Sorry was a word she learned from being a burden,
and mistake for sucking up space.
And so she folded into her introvert place.
A universe ripped at her creases,
and frayed her sharpened corners.
Reduced to bits of paper, of moments,
scattered across a surface.
A fierce wind swept her into the air
and her pieces dispersed across leaves,
branches and blue.
High above, all below,
she saw a different kind of beauty,
the kind of world which she’d lived deprived of life.
With emotive eyes, she looked at the color,
and the life she’d been denied.
And she realized sorry’s were a waste of time,
and taking space meant it was her’s to be alive.
