I haven’t written a single poem in almost 4 years and got the itch to today. Initially I began writing a blog post but decided I’d better express myself by writing a poem (the first of several to come.)
This one is a quick freestyle poem (not about me, for anyone wondering.)
Ages pass, recurrent mistakes linger.
Spirits desperate for a glimmer of hope
Scarred and reticent to risk again
The soul, gasping for warmth
Shunned by callous caution.
Nary a missed opportunity
Escapes scrutiny, rendering
A scourge wrought on one’s self
Yearning for even the illusion of reprieve
Courage, fortitude, initiative
The token of progress
Eludes discovery once again.
