The Little Brown Moth and Me

wings beating frantically
against the shower window,
wasting an entire existence
denied by an invisible wall

    Wow Tim this was cool! I could really sympathize with that poor moths struggle and the very vivid description in the first four lines. Living so short a life only to be denied by an invisible wall... there is definitely something to be learned from that even in real human life!
