Sharing my heart, tears, and love, one story at a time. ❤️

My future 

on February 27, 2015

I cast my eyes forward watching and waiting with great anticipation.

What by chance do I see waiting and watching on the edge of the precipice?

Do I see hope on the horizon, faith in myself, or disaster looming ahead?

It all depends on my point of view how comfortable I feel in my skin. 

Thinking positively I see help, support, and advice. 

Thinking negatively will lead me to feeling exposed, vulnerable, and protective. 

Will I let down my barriers and allow goodness to pour forth?

Like wine, songs, and poetry enjoyed on a dark night with the moon looming above. 

I hope to conquer my fears and rise up to my challenges. 

Instead of cowering into the mysterious passages of my mind. 

Every soul carries a mystery and misery to their name and sometimes it’s revealed or hidden for all of time. 

I must learn that my heart is still intact even while the words spew forth, like a geyser emptying its contents from the earth. 

It is here where I sit, my mind contemplating, then upright and pacing my heart racing. 

This newness, this peacefulness, this soul’s rebirth. 

This is my attempt at a sonnet, for my Writing 201 Poetry. I pray that this poem won’t have Shakespeare rolling over in his grave with discontent. The prompt is future, the form is sonnet, and the device is chiasmus.

    It’s a very good attempt, who cares what Shakespeare would have thought of it.

  2. I didn’t realize you were in school?!

    I think Shakespeare would be proud ❤

    Love this line: “Every soul carries a mystery and misery to their name and sometimes it’s revealed or hidden for all of time.”

    Look forward to reading more!

      Oh Jenn, thank you so much. I’m not in school, except the school of hard knocks. 😉 I haven’t attempted to write a sonnet since high school. Where my Scottish born English teacher told me I spewed useless drivel upon the page. Cantankerous old bastard that he is. 😝

    These lines are everything. Shakespeare would steal this if he was alive today.
