Inert

Chemical reaction; life mine
Final result, always unknown
Survival can’t happen alone
But if each chemical opines
With all, can I always be fine?
Befuddled by the sparks, I cry
I react bad, how hard I try
To seething actions, I explode
Yet I want to take the high road
How can I be inert and fly?

The form involved here is a Décima.Originating from Spain, the Décima, also known as the Espinella is a octosyllabic (eight syllables each line) ten line verse. It has a rhyme scheme ABBAACCDDC and is quite popular as a song form in Latin America even now. The décima can deal with a wide range of subject matter, including themes that are philosophical, religious, lyrical, and political.

Written as part of the April A to Z in 26 Days challenge, and 30 poems in 30 days, NaPoWriMo challenge.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
