Idiomatic poem

Beggars aren't choosers

Only if you are a beggar

Or consider yourself one

You lose your liberties 

To choose and make choices 


Ships are safe in the harbours 

But that's not what ships are made for 

They are designed for the oceans and turbulence 

So if you are comfortably cozy in your corner 

Consider yourself docked for few hours 

After which you have to make a shift 

In life from one end to the other 


Petals that fall are still worth 

You can still get lovely fragrances 

Falling not always means it's an end 

Sometimes it's a beginning 

Of a whole new life 

After falling from a beautiful surrounding 


Don't be a prisoner of your dreams 

Let the dreams be dreams 

Live in reality 

That's far wiser than dreaming 

For dreams end when you wake 

But reality follows when dreams break 


Don't be guided by others wisdom 

For they could be misguided fools 

One should follow ones own judgements 

You'll never be fooled if you follow your intuitions 

Once a wise woman judged the end 

And it followed the same 

Though the so called wise men had different opinion
