Poem: The Other Side of Cliche

The Other Side of Cliche

They promise
there is light at the other end.
It’s a cliche.
We all say it.
Sometimes we mean it.
Mostly, we just hope,
leaving out the part about
the fires and dragons that may live there
hungry and waiting.

That light
may be heaven, or may be hell.
So gird your sword,
and hoist your shield.
better to be overdressed
than dead.

About this poem

A little dark humor to start the day. I woke up too early.
