It’s the first day of April, which means that I’ve got to pull my fingers out (of what you may ask – probably all the cakes and pies!) and start cranking out the poetic goodness for you all!
The prompt that I am exploring today is to write an instructional poem.
Here is the prompt if you too want to play along.
My interpretation of the prompt is fast and loose, since this is the first one of the month, so I hope you enjoy it and thanks for reading.
“All Will Be Revealed” by David Ellis
Completely immersed in our dreams until we’re drowning
Experience adventures while your mind is still your own
If you can’t control what’s in your heart, start with your head
It won’t be long before everything you hold dear is subverted
Far be it from me to tell you how to live your best life
It comes as no surprise that memories continue to fade into the night
Live by the code of standing your ground for what you believe is right
Don’t hate the moment when this happens, as it’s the most that you will ever feel alive
What writhes inside our bones are new ways to read the signs
The countdown began from the moment we were born
Buried treasure inside of us each and every day
Truths most profound just waiting to be found
Without thinking or understanding, we’re lost in a sea of unknowns
Choking on an ever-rising tide until it engulfs our very souls
Mistakes teach us to embrace our sensitive human sides
There’s no such thing as time wasted, when navigating doubts deep inside
When in despair or facing fear, remember we’ve been here before
Stare down what haunts you, there is no need to run or hide
Save the tears that you could have cried and feel the fire burning behind your eyes
Leaving behind a world where all will be revealed
One day at a time
