The Poetry Bar

You are better off unresolved

Impeccable structures
Are only meant for exhibits
Disabled by the desire to preserve
The beauty superimposed
By mortal hands

But you are the grainy dunes
That set the desert on fire
The acid rain that shakes
The clouds and triggers the thunders

You are the stubborn spring
That flows out of immovable mountains
The indomitable seed that sprouts
In humble soil

You are better off in the open
Showcasing your imperfection
Destroying what you can
With your innocence
And constructing out of the debris
With your wisdom

You are better out of proportion
Striving to create balance
With every step you take

You are better off unresolved
Your puzzle is what keeps
The world turning

Esmeralda Balita is a living paradox.
