My Jacket Metaphor

My Jacket Metaphor

I always wanted to boost my closet,
Especially now that winter is coming.
I never really got myself to go shopping,
But today I bought a jacket

Okay I went shopping sometime ago,
I spent hours looking for the right jacket.
But none synced with my ego,
So, I just put it off till winter’s onset.

Most jackets did not match my personality.
Some others were just plain ugly.
Okay I admit some were too pricey.
Last thing I wanted was to dress up sloppy.

But today I bought a jacket.
I guess I needed to be more patient.
I checked better malls, designers, etcetera.
The jacket commitment isn’t for a short era.

So I’m happy I was very patient.
My jacket has just the right style.
And buying it didn’t leave a huge dent on my pocket.
Just look at how this jacket makes me smile 🙂

  1. This is really good. Love the comparisons winter and the need for a jacket. I read your explanation so it is much clearer what you are talking about. Of course in winter time it is so cold so you definitely need to have a “jacket” something to keep you warm or someone. Love it!
