I was reading a blog post “story of the ABC” in response to the daily challenge “Alphabet soup” and I was inspired to write a poem with the letters of the alphabets- each line will begin with a letter of the alphabet. I set out to write not having any theme and this is what I churned out.
It is not perfect, but it is a pretty good attempt. Please drop your comments, don’t spare them. If you are up to it, let your comments be written in alphabets too- each line of your comments to start with the letters of the alphabets. This should be fun!
Although I would love to
Brag about my proficiency and
Creativity, I really can’t.
Despite the accolades and the
Encomiums, I still think it
Fit to keep my head down;
Great as it might be to get
High on the praise, it is
Inimical to growth and sound
Judgment in future endeavors and pursuit of
Knowledge, which is key in
Literary circles lest I become a
Moniker, and a monument.
Nevertheless, not to acknowledge the applause
Or allow the ointment of adulation grease the chaffed
Palms is not also a pleasant thing to do.
Question is, how do I find the balance?
Relishing the delicacies while
Silencing the urge to binge, learning to
Tread cautiously along the tenuous slope that is success
Understanding that it takes only an unguarded moment and the
Vicissitudes of life like a violent storm can overturn a life’s
Work and lay waste an empire build with sweat and blood, and like a
Xoanon, an image with no power, be left to
Yearn for the days when one was alive and not a story to be told in
Zines of what could have and should have been.
So, who is the first to go? Let the fun begin….
