Break away- oh little one,
Unto the sky, to see the world;
Taste the pollens on rose buds,
Trust in your wings, to take you there;
Embrace the beauty you’ve become,
Rock your wings, unto safe haven;
Follow the path less taken,
Lest you be caught- in a web of sly;
You trust in your wings, you’ll make it.
In response to Writing201 Poetry assignment 3. The prompt is “Truth” written in the form of an “Acrostic” with an internal rhyme.
I journeyed towards the top of a hill,
And met a Man tilted at its brink;
He looked distraught,
He stood, head first-
I stumbled upon a man looking for peace.
I once journeyed towards a man in need-
Of a wanderer to talk to, a soul to speak;
Till the sun arose,
We exchanged tales of old;
A wanderer and stranger once met at a hill.
