Let’s put this one to rest
I understand
That clichés endure
Codifying folk wisdom
To, usually, transcend
Time and circumstances

Yet I recoil when I hear one
That undermines
All which I believe
The very principle
That guides my life
And orders my days

But it would be feeble
To fight
To think
I could convince
The long gone
And unknown authors
To reconsider
For my convenience

  1. I love the idea behind the poem, and of course, the poem too :) I guess we all come across these clichés at some point or the other..and more often than not, logic revolts to them...
    Thanks for sharing! :)
