I think this is a great poem. The message is expressed clearly through some great images, and on top of all that, it's a great example of a chiasmus -- a word I've never heard before, but it makes sense in the examples above in the forum and especially here.

I love the connection between lines 4 and 5. Going into it knowing it's a chiasmus sort of distracted me at first reading, but reading again, these lines just really stick out. Solid writing there.
