Far Beyond Influence

Push me push you
Topple them
Push together
Stand truer
But only when
One resists
–at least the one–
Truth just might
Topple them

Regarding the term ‘push’:

Do you more often hear the term, or feel its meaning?

Upon reading Robert Lee Brewer’s Wednesday Poetry Prompt today, it occurred to me that I don’t often hear the term spoken. Most often, I see “PUSH” when exiting a business or institutional building.


Vocally—except in such simple, helpful directive as referenced above—it’s not common to need to say it.. That is, unless there exists a pressing matter of need (actual or imagined) for resolve.

Can you think of scenarios in which you’ve experienced the meaning of the word ‘push’? I’d be curious to hear about them. You can comment, or drop a link in comments (perhaps to your own post which uses the term).

Thank you for visiting!
