Yielding – Anthony Ward


Growing pains us!
Pulling us in opposite directions,
Putting ourselves under such great strain
In the hope of making ourselves taller,
To reach the very heights
Of those who look down on us,
Willing to yield to the pressures of change
Before we reach breaking point
Through shear tension
Of having to stretch our imaginations.
