I’ve always admired poets who could rhyme because I’ve always found it so difficult. Taking the time out to think of rhyming words to me disrupted the flow as the words left my mind and went onto the page. Well today I wrote a poem that rhymes, I still find it difficult but I’m proud of myself for actually completing one. Its also the longest poem I’ve ever written. Well here it is, I haven’t thought of a title just quite yet, but it was inspired by the word “Journey.”
When new challenges loom, you’ve got to leap.
How else can you accomplish any feat?
Just beyond that fear is your dream.
No matter how bad things may seem.
Continue to sow and you will reap.
It’s in the trouble that we are transformed.
It’s in the struggle that we are reborn.
This is when our strength grows.
So we can endure the coming lows.
Don’t you be sad, and don’t you have sorrow.
This isn’t the promise for all the tomorrow’s.
There’s still love and there’s still laughter.
That is what we should be after.
How sweet is the calm after the conflict?
How sweet is the freedom after the restrict?
Revel in your highs.
But don’t forget your cries.
And all the triumphs that you’ve gripped.
Take heart and take heed!
For it has been decreed!
Trouble may be with you at night.
But will be gone at first light!
Claim victory and be freed!
