Metaphor’s Been Done Before | A Poem by JD DeHart

Of course
the metaphor’s been done
before

Face the sun
Wind the hair
Smile the sea

But the metaphor
has been done before

Path the light
Choice the dark
Life the road

But the metaphor
has been done before

Silver the hope
Crimson the clash
Plum the aftermath

But the metaphor
has been done before.
