Grab a cup of tea or coffee (oh what the heck, get a danish too!) and sit a spell. You might want to grab your notebook and pen because you never know when you will be inspired to write down a quote, or jot down a poem of your own. Words are like that, they take you on a journey and the next thing you know you are breathing life into your own magical world of words.

OctPoWriMo Day 8

 I'm going to attempt to write a poem on my phone since using the keyboard for my tablet takes too much brain power for my creativity to wake up.

When the world leaves you breathless.
One must ask, "Am I doing this right?"
No one gives you a handbook on doing life.
Do's and don'ts people have plenty to say.
Eventually though you have to figure it out.
For otherwise we are stumbling and fumbling in the dark.
Unnecessary steps taken that lead nowhere.
Life feels harder than it has to be.
Little cuts tearing open.
Yes or no, does it even matter?

Shadows swallowing you whole
Trolls coming out from the between places
Random acts of horror next to kindness
Allowing the chaos to grow
No wonder people are flailing about.
Got to wonder if the merry go round will stop.
Eventually it must, it must, it must...

This was difficult on my phone, too. Hopefully I'll be able to get another laptop soon. How are your words flowing on this OctPoWriMo journey? 


  1. (side comment... I wish there was a way to remember my profile)
    I love the story you've told. It IS a weird world we live in, with wild things cohabiting with lovely ones. I choose to focus on the good as much as I can, but some days, some days...

    1. Exactly, and I also try to focus on the positive but lately the negative has been harsh.

      What about your profile?

  2. I love the mixture of emotion and imagery in this poem.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
