The Fountain

What follows is a poem that was inspired by a quote from writer Paulo Coelho. I’ve created a bit of irony, containing the poem to such a strict triolet format, even though the topic is about breaking through constraints. Hope you enjoy it and would love some feedback;

 

“Be like the fountain that overflows, not like the cistern that merely contains”

Ain’t no feeling like being free,

Don’t let your soul be contained.

Overflow with creativity,

Ain’t no feeling like being free,

Don’t just let your spirit be;

Break off the shackles and chains,

Ain’t no feeling like being free,

Don’t let your soul be contained.
