"The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud."- Coco Chanel
Life isn't about surviving the storm, it's about learning to dance in the rain.

I write this poem to,
Those who hide in the shadows,
And cover their eyes.

Not to brave souls who,
Choose to stand up and fight but,
To anonymous.

I feel that the poem is very deep in making me think about who she writes the poem to. I wonder if the poem she is writing it to is people she knows, or maybe her past self.

This has a really good meaning behind it. If you wanted, you could right a free verse in the same topic and make it longer and more fleshed out.

Life isn't measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments which take your breath away.

You are only as strong as your weakest link.

Great job, very meaningful!

I really loved this haiku - it's absolutely beautiful. If you could find time to check out my Haiku I'd really appreciate it. I'm new to this site so I don't get many views. I hope one day I can make something as great as this. I love things about anonymity. I often feel anonymous even around people I know so I really liked this haiku.

“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.”

Beautiful! Just goes to show how little words are needed to create something so meaningful.
