Pressures can impinge

High walls moss-laden
Like maze runner stultified
Standing dumb-founded

Beauty is neutral
In eyes of the beholder
Fulfilled desires

Pressure can impinge
But high resolve is savior
To each his own whims

  2. I like the way you have worked in the 'eye of the beholder' theme. That maze looks like a tight fit.

  13. This made me think which is what I love about poetry...challenges and close calls brings us to wondrous places despite the struggles.
